Da Nang city – the home of famous Bridges
The coastal city of Danang in Central Vietnam has been one of the most visited cities of the country since the My Khe Beach was featured in Forbes magazine after the Vietnam Civil War. Due to the flock of international tourists wanting to relax and enjoy the pristine white beach of Danang, the city’s economic standing improved and became the third-largest city of Vietnam. As the city progresses, long and sturdy bridges and high rise buildings were built.
If you want to spice up your Vietnam trip, Danang would be a great place to visit. Danang never fails to amaze its visitors with its unique and mind-blowing architectural design structures like buildings and bridges. Danang has 7 must-see bridges like the Dragon Bridge, the only bridge has fire show, the Han River Bridge which is the only swing bridge in Vietnam that swings 90 degrees at 11 in the evening every Saturday and Sunday. The midsection of the bridge rotates every day at 1:00 AM to make way for ships passing by. Another interesting bridge in Danang is the Tran Thi Ly Bridge which is the oldest bridge crossing the Han River and designed to look like a sail. This was built during the French colonial period in 1950. While the Thuan Phuoc Bridge is the longest suspension bridge in Vietnam, 1.8 kilometers long to be exact. The bridge at the end of Han River and links Danang with Son Tra Peninsula has the best city view during sunset.
