Owner description: The Long Bien bridge across the Red River connects Hanoi with the main port of Haiphong. Designed by Gustave Eiffel, the bridge sustained significant damage during the Vietnam War. Only half of the bridge retains its original shape, but a rebuilding project supported by the French government is currently in progress to restore the bridge to its original appearance.

I enjoyed my walk across the Long Bien bridge on an unseasonably warm winter day in Hanoi. About 2km in length, the bridge allows for beautiful views of the Red River and Hanoi skyline. Although the bridge is deteriorating and in need of restoration, it's a true part of the city. Enjoy your trip across the bridge, and make time... More

this bridge's so special. I love it so much. It was built by French architects back in 1899 and was completed during early 1900.I believe you will really like walking on the bridge

At first, We didn't like this bridge because it looks old and not beautiful. However, We changed our mind when we was heard about the stories relating to it. The Bridge was destroyed many times but it still exists until now. It witness the development of Vietnam from the period of war to modern life.

This review is quite late. The Long Bien Bridge is located at the Red River. It was built by French architects back in 1899 and was completed during early 1900. It is an old bridge that links the Districts of Hoan Kiem and Long Bien in Hanoi. We passed by this bridge on the way to the Noi Bai International... More
