I suppose this bridge is verging on being iconic to Hué with its lights at night. It stands out during the day though, and we stayed a very short distance from it, and walked to our first night in town.

This bridge lights up in different colours and night and plays a central piece in festivals in Hue. You need to cross the bridge to get to the market. If you look carefully, you can still see the bullet holes a legacy of the war in Vietnam.

We crossed this bridge at night but also had a good view of it from the Imperial Hotel in Hue from the Bar on the top floor. Looks rather nice with the bight lights on the Perfume River. Apparently the bridge played a role during the Vietnamese war.

The bridge on this spot played a role in day one of the US attempt to retake Hue during the tet offensive of 1968. Heading for the citadel the marines tried and failed to gain access. Their failure and retreat back over this bridge soon led to the change in rules of engagement which led to air strikes on the... More

We used the bridge to cross over the river when visiting the Citadel. It was an interesting crossing as we watched the motorcyclists scramble for space on the bridge. There is plenty of room for pedestrians and we took ours time to stop and take some photos of the river. The bridge itself is an interesting design. Handy for crossing... More

Besides providing excellent views of the river for pedestrians (it is too thin for motorcyclists to take their eyes off the road!!) it is very historic-the original bridge was designed by Mr Eiffel of tower in paris fame.

This bridge spanning the Perfume River provides pedestrian access which allows great views up and down the river. The night views are great as well as the bridge is lit up in different colours.
