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.

Get a motorbike, if you dont, a xeom. Eat a corn seated in a tiny plastic chair in the mid of the old bridge and watch motorbikes and the old train pass by, if you are adventurous go down the stairs and walk among palm trees and banana trees near the red river. I saw naked vietnamese taking a bath!

Whilst I hadn't thought to put a review on Trip Advisor of Long Bien Bridge if you are going to be in Hanoi you shouldn't miss it On first glance you may be disappointed that it's old and rusting but having gone on a scooter tour across it you get to understand its importance to the city - there are...

Took city bus #47A over bridge while going to Bat Trang pottery village (a 30 minute ride each way). Nice views of river from bus. Bus is 7000 dong each way per person and wasn't crowded. Nice way to see the sights from bridge.

This bridge is beautiful and well constructed. There is a section of motor bikes and a section for cars. I was informed that Eiffel was the designer of this bridge prior to building the Eiffel toward in France. Both government are working hand in hand to preserve it and to restore it. This bridge is the main crossway of the... More

the bridge was old, rusty, and not that easy to walk to. Once I got there, I was really put off, it did not look nice, it just looked like a piece of old metal. =(

Over 100 years old and still standing strong, this 2.4km long bridge is probably one of the most surprising attractions in Hanoi. You'd normally not think of a bridge as a "must-see" but in this case, it's definitely worth the effort to hunt down the pedestrian walkway leading onto the bridge and just spend an hour or two walking the...

Saw the sign to the train station and went up the old stairs to find this bridge and the railway tracks running along it. A very old bridge built by the French and looking like it needs maintenance. What I discovered from the bridge was the view of the beautiful long mural along the highway underneath, and of course you... More
