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.

Fresh wind blowing from the Red River really refresh you and your feelings after all busy days. It a bit challenging since too much motorcycles and the side walk is too narrow. Avoid going there during the rush hours. The quietness will be a real add up

I love that this bridge is reserved for pedestrians, bicycles, cycles, and trains. We stopped midway to take photos and enjoy the scenery. It is over 2 kilometres in length. Very interesting. Attractive in a charming way.

This is a working bridge best viewed from the other bridge in Hanoi. This bridge is significant because of its place in history not necessarily its engineering or architectural significance. It is worth a short walk to see something that has a place in history.

It's a bridge. If you like bridges you'll enjoy it. Not quite sure the significance of the bridges historic significance so perhaps I should not write a review, but though I should say something in case you travelled a fair way to see it.

It is a long bridge that is still in use. Has not been confirmed, I was told it was design by the same architect as Eiffel tower Can be photographic if you look.
