Built in 1898 by French Colonists, the Long Bien Bridge is an iconic landmark of Vietnam. The now-rusted wrought iron structure has lived through the American War and is (mostly) intact. It offers a spectacular view as you cross the river and get a bird's eye view of Hoan Kiem district. The incredible panorama makes this a great spot for photography and nature enthusiasts.
Built between 1899 and 1902, the bridge was designed by legendary architect Gustav Eiffel, recognized for his work on the Eiffel tower, and was constructed by the Vietnamese people using domestic materials. Long Bien Bridge is the only railway bridge with a pedestrian pathway, so make sure to take peaceful strolls on the bridge to acknowledge the perseverance and bravery of the Hanoians during the Vietnam War. The bridge encapsulates the bravery and hardship of the Hanoians but also exemplifies freedom and independence.
