Han River Bridge
Holiday Travel Guide

Han River Bridge which includes a bridge and motorbike riding as well as a large group of people

Vietnam’s first swing bridge is not only a vital transportation link, but also a modern architectural and artistic masterpiece.

Stroll along the spectacular Han River Bridge in the evening to be dazzled by its glowing neon beams. Walk along the river to find the perfect spot for a photo of the unusual architectural forms or use the bridge to leave the city and access the golden beaches of the east coast.

Building of the Han River Bridge began in 1997 and it was finished 3 years later. The project was notable as it was largely funded by residents of Da Nang who wanted a quicker way to access the hotels and resorts of the Son Tra Peninsula.

The best way to appreciate the splendid design features of the Han River Bridge is to cross it on foot. Slowly walk the 1,594-foot (486-meter) crossing and you will see metal beams rising diagonally above the central point forming the shape of a tree. For a different view, follow the walking path along either side of the river.

Be sure to return after dark when the bridge is illuminated with bright neon colors, with its reflection shimmering on the dark water below.

Come back to the area later in the evening to see the bridge’s rotating mechanism in action. For a few hours during the middle of the night, the bridge turns on its axis to allow ships to pass by.

Despite the construction of the newer Dragon Bridge, in 2013, the Han River Bridge remains a major hub for locals and travelers going between the city and the coast. Take a short drive east of the bridge to reach the soft sand and warm blue-green waters of Pham Van Dong Beach. For something more urban, experience superb shopping and entertainment in the heart of Da Nang.

The Han River Bridge is located on the northeast side of the city, a 15-minute drive from the beautiful Son Tra Peninsula.
