This bridge across the west river was designed by George Eiffel and was quite elaborate. It was damaged in the war and rebuilt, though in a lesser manner. Today it is reserved for foot traffic or small motor transportation. If you don't walk across it...More

Many a US serviceman gave their life to destroy this bridge just to be rebuilt again and again. Shows no battle scars now. You can see it from many other bridges near by.

Designed by Gustav Eiffel (of the Tower fame), Long Bien Bridge is one of the true monuments to the history of this city. Yes, it could do with a coat of paint, and yes it looks like it may collapse any time now, but it...More

An interesting walk along the bridge. Just be careful where you step. Locate the Long Bien train station and you can walk to the tracks. Note the train timings.
