With unique designs, Rong May glass bridge, Golden bridge and Dragon bridge are impressive destinations for tourists in Vietnam.
Vietnam has a number of impressive bridges that attract many local and foreign tourists to come.
Dragon bridge, Da Nang
The six-lane bridge crosses the Han River, serving as direct routes to My Khe Beach and Non Nuoc Beach as well as a popular spot amongst travelling photographers. Dragon Bridge was officially opened in 2013 after a two-year-long construction, commemorating the 38th anniversary of Da Nang City’s liberation. According to local beliefs, which date back to the Ly Dynasty, the dragon is a significant symbol of power, nobility and good fortune.
On weekends and annual festivities, the state-of-the-art bridge is also scheduled to spit water or breathe fire from its mouth from 21:00 onwards.
There are also plenty of riverfront bars, restaurants, and cafes offering terrace seats that overlook Vietnam’s longest bridge. Alternatively, you can opt to sit at the waterfront (where marble carvings of animals and deities are set along the Han River) to enjoy the view.
Golden bridge, Da Nang
It says a lot about the newly built Golden Bridge in Da Nang, that international tourists are travelling from far and wide to witness this perfect blend of ground-breaking architecture and resplendent nature. What was designed to be a small part of the Sun World Ba Na Hills Theme Park, just outside of Da Nang, has exploded in popularity, inspired by viral videos of the gorgeous bridge and the ultimate Instagram-friendly pictures that it creates.
Rong May Glass Bridge in Lai Chau,
Located in the ecological tourism site of Son Binh commune in Tam Duong district in the mountainous northwestern province of Lai Chau, Rong May Glass Bridge has started to emerge as a popular tourist destination since opening to the public.
The elevator has three faces which are made of glass. Sungate Group which built the bridge at its Rong May Tourist Complex said the glass could withstand the weight of 3 people at a time. Moreover, the speed of this elevator is quite low so tourists don’t need to be so worried.
When using this elevator system, tourists can go through the clouds and feel like being in paradise. In addition, the Tay Bac forest will become smaller and smaller in your eyes.
Long Biên Bridge, Hanoi
The Long Bien bridge across the Red River connects Hanoi with the main port of Haiphong. Designed by Gustave Eiffel, the bridge sustained significant damage during the Vietnam War. Only half of the bridge retains its original shape, but a rebuilding project supported by the French government is currently in progress to restore the bridge to its original appearance.
Truong Tien Bridge, Hue city
Truong Tien Bridge gracefully silhouetted on Perfume River for over 100 years has seen ups and downs of the historical events of the ancient capital. This is one of the typical symbols in Hue attracting the large number of tourists at home and abroad.
With the long-lasting history of over 100 years, Truong Tien Bridge has undergone many ups and downs with the development of Hue. When completing its construction, this was a solid steel bridge with civilized structure and construction techniques of the Western. Truong Tien Bridge was the pride of the people in Hue. However, the bridge used to destroy by natural disasters, war and was remodeled several times. Most notable is its restoration in 1991 lasting until 1995. The bridge had many important changes after the restoration.
Accordingly, the balconies of the hallway at the location of the piers were removed; the width of the bridge was narrowed (from 6,20m to 5,40m as today); gray is used instead of the original color of the bridge – metallic color; the bronze plaque mounted at the bridgehead with “Trang Tien Bridge” instead of “Truong Tien Bridge” created a lack of consensus on the bridge’s name. Thanks to its historical significance, Truong Tien Bridge is worth one of tourist Hue attractions alluring both domestic and international tourists.
