The Yellow River iron bridge is a pedestrian bridge over the Yellow River. It is filled with hawkers selling all manner of wares, from hot sweet potatoes and bulk potato chips to artisans who create sculptures out of wire.

I don't get why it is an attraction because it is plainly an iron bridge across the Yellow River. You can view it from the top of Baita Mountain (白塔山, White Pagoda Hill).

You have to visit it during the night it's more interesting (illuminated),it's near the night market , so it's more lively at night, and the yellow river too.
