I crossed this bridge by car, by bicycle and on foot and just because some people say it's an attraction does not make it one. The bridge has no unique design or engineering... the guards in the guard booths are the most interesting part and won't let you take their picture. Most days of the year, the view is clouded...

Certainly not worth a trip of it's own, but if you are already going to the Yellow Crane Tower and want to take a small detour, it has a nice view.

We were touring and took a boat ride beneath the bridge last May and it was a misty view as we approached it. We didn't get to walk across it. It was apparently the first bridge across the Yangtze for trains, cars and people. It was a huge concrete structure - it wouldn't win any prizes in the beauty stakes... More

It was a clear sunny day, and a perfect day to walk over this bridge. The views were nice, but knowing I was actually crossing the Yangtze was what thrilled me most. It also gave me the chance to see the yellow crane tower for the very first time. All in all it was a nice walk over a nice... More

This is the first bridge over yangtze river, built by Chinese but under the consultancy of Russian engineers. Very solid bridge, and even better quality than most of the recent bridges built in the last 20 years. Worth walking from turtle hill to snake hill, if not foggy.

This was the original Yangtze River bridge built in Wuhan in the 1950's, with the upper level devoted to cars and the lower level to trains. We were staying at the Holiday Inn Riverside that is within walking distance of the bridge, we also drove across the bridge to visit the Yellow Crane Tower. Unfortunately there was not a time...

That´s all I can say. It´s a bridge. A long bridge. What more? If you´re for any reason closeby, ok go and see. If not, does not worth any effort.

It is a nice place see the sunset in Wuhan. Most important, it is free of charge and can be reached easily by many routes of public bus!

Not the most beautiful bridge. Guess it's fame is due to it's Russian technology in 50's and being the 1st bridge of it's kind. Took a bus from yellow crane tower entrance (non-staircase one) and cross the bridge. Not bad.

Ok so it's a bridge... though if you're like me and the biggest river you'd ever seen before this is the Murray then you're pretty amazed by the size of the River. Wuhan itself is a crazy, busy and I dare say dirty city.
