Owner description: 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.

Looks very cool and has a big history. A gift from the french and built by mister Eiffel i believe. Super easy to get to from old quarter and a excellent spot from some very cool photos

This is a great relic of the past. While it may take awhile to walk across, it is definitely worth it. Also, if you look close, you can still see the marks and pills left from American bombs. Great little afternoon trip.

Really enjoyed seeing life a bit out of the city. The bridge has 2 lanes of traffic going either way, with the odd bike going against the traffic (rather them...), and the train track running through the middle. The Red River under the bridge gives you an idea of rural life with small farms beside the river and people living on boats under the bridge. 10 minute walk from the Old Quarter, but so different.

Walking over to the tiny island at middle of Mekong River through the bridge. Get to see different type of people riding along the bridge. Spectacular feel when the train pass by......
