Beautiful Bridges to visit in Da Nang

There are 10 Da Nang bridges crossing Han River in the city and five of them were once ‘the symbol of Da Nang’ and it’s a hard job to determine which bridge is the most beautiful of them all, even for the locals.

Golden Bridge

As the most famous bridge in Da Nang and in Vietnam in 2018, Golden Bridge Ba Na Hills boasts a graceful and sophisticated architecture and design. Today, Golden Bridge has become the new symbol of this beautiful city.

Designed by TA Landscape Architecture, Golden Bridge is set in Thien Thai garden, Ba Na Hills and blessed with the magnificent scenery of the Ba Na Mountain. The bridge is 150m long, gilded and inspired by the idea of a golden silk trip held by the hands of gods.

On the footbridge side, lavender and Chrysanthemums are planted, adding even more colors to the sparkling bridge.

Not surprising, this striking appearance easily made Golden Bridge a tourist trend, not only to foreign travelers but also to domestic travelers.

Dragon Bridge

Dragon Bridge, older than Golden Bridge (and much closer), has long been the symbol of Da Nang in the new era. Constructed in 2013, Dragon Bridge quickly became a hot trend thank to its magical look – the whole bridge is made into a giant golden dragon crossing the Han River in Da Nang. The total length of the bridge is about 666m with six lanes for traffic.

One thing to expect to see at Dragon Bridge is the water and fire breathing show during the weekends and holidays. You can come to the bridge at 9pm on these days to see the dragon breaths fire and water. If you’re traveling Vietnam with kids, they would definitely love it.

Han River Bridge

The oldest ‘symbol of Da Nang’ – Han River Bridge was designed by Vietnamese engineers and first opened in 2000. The bridge marked a period of development and a youthful dynamic.

Although during the daytime, the bridge might not stand out, but in the nighttime, it’s when the beauty of Han River Bridge is shown in its glory.

When the sun goes down, the bridge’s lights are on, a large part of the river will be lit up colorfully, embellishing the city even more. In the past, it was fascinating to come and watch the Han River Bridge swing at night and Han River Bridge is the only swing bridge in Vietnam.

To watch this bridge, you can join a river cruise along the dreamy Han River at night.

Tran Thi Ly Bridge

Tran Thi Ly Bridge is different from all other bridges in Da Nang. In fact, each bridge in Da Nang has its own style, making them distinctive from others.

Inaugurated on Danang Liberation Day (29/3/2013), Tran Thi Ly Bridge makes heads turn because of its demanding structure and design. The bearings located under the pylon are the largest ever to be used in bridge structures in the entire world.

The inclined pylons are 145 meter high creating a sail-shaped bridge on the water of Han River. It’s such a pleasure to watch the bridge during both daytime and nighttime.

Thuan Phuoc Bridge

Thuan Phuoc is a suspension bridge that crosses the lower Han River in Da Nang City. The most highlighted feature of Thuan Phuoc bridge is the two major pillars with the height of 80m, lit up so brightly at night.

Thuan Phuoc has a modern outlook, full of charm and splendor. This bridge is located at a special location where the river flows to the sea at the Southern Da Nang Bay. Thuan Phuoc connects coastal road Nguyen Tat Thanh and Vo Nguyen Giap street. So you’ll enjoy a great sight of the ocean when crossing this bridge.
