The Dragon Bridge has become the new symbol of Da Nang
Talking about the most beautiful bridges in Da Nang without Dragon Bridge would be a crime. The 666-meter long bridge resembles a majestic dragon crossing the Han River. This eccentric design represents the city’s growth power and also creates a great photo opportunity.
Though what attracts people is the fire and water show every weekend at 9 PM. For 30 minutes, onlookers can observe an exciting performance from the “dragon’s mouth”. Afterward, you can head down to one end of the bridge for Son Tra Night Market, where you can try delicious Central Vietnam dishes.
Han River Bridge symbolizes Da Nang’s emergence
Built in 1997, Han River Bridge was the first swing bridge in Vietnam. Initially, the middle part of the bridge turns sideways so that ships could pass by. Though this function is no longer necessary, witnessing the bridge “swing” has become an exciting activity to do at night for both locals and visitors. You can join in the fun from 11 PM - 12 PM each weekend.
