Da Nang city is well known for the stunning Dragon bridge that brings together visitors from the neighbouring suburbs as well as the visitors who enjoy the night-time view of the city skyline.
How is the Dragon Bridge constructed?
Iron and concrete combine to form the bridge, which has six lanes to accommodate the high volume of traffic. Roughly half a mile long, with a span of about 40 yards, the bridge is made up of 8,000 tonnes. What makes this bridge so unique? It can change colour, breathe fire, and even change its shape!
The story behind the bridge
Over 85 million dollars was spent on constructing the Dragon Bridge, an American-designed monument, to commemorate the 38th anniversary of the Vietnam War’s end. Da Nang’s port city has slowly transformed into a new commercial and cultural hub since it finally launched in 2013.
When to visit the bridge
Another layer to the Dragon Bridge
In addition to facilitating mobility between Han River districts, the bridge’s goal was to attract tourists. The dragon has been a beloved symbol of the Far East since ancient times, and this useful piece of art is a tribute to that tradition.
