Dragon Bridge is the 6th bridge built across the Han River of Da Nang, connecting Nguyen Van Linh street with Vo Van Kiet street. The previous five bridges are Song Han, Thuan Phuoc, Nguyen Van Troi, Tran Thi Ly, and Tien Son Bridges.
Dragon Bridge has the shape of a dragon, its length is 666 m, 37.5 m wide with 6 lanes for running, and the two sidewalks for pedestrians.
The bridge simulates a dragon in the Ly dynasty flying to the East Sea with the desire to develop and reach out to the great sea of Da Nang, Vietnam. Specifically, the dragon weighs nearly 9,000 tons and is the largest steel dragon in Vietnam.
Dragon Bridge was officially opened to traffic on March 29, 2013, at a cost of $ 88 million (equivalent to VND 1,500 billion). The bridge over the Han River of Da Nang makes it convenient to move from the city to the international airport.
To feature the Dragon Bridge – one of the tourist highlights in Da Nang, the design team had to use 2,500 LED lights to light the bridge every night.
On Saturdays, Sundays, or public holidays, Dragon Bridge spits water and fire at 9:00 pm. The spraying time of water and fire is within 15 minutes.
According to the vote of Architecturendesign, Dragon Bridge in Vietnam is in the top 15 most beautiful bridges in the world, and honorably received the grand prize by the Council of American engineering companies.
The Danang International Fireworks Festival (DIFF) is held annually, and it is the largest festival in the city, attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors to admire it, taking place near Dragon Bridge. You can go to Dragon Bridge to have the perfect view of the fireworks from the festival.
