The bridge has served Hanoi people for more than 100 years.

It was built from 189 to 1902 by the architects Daydé and Pillé of Paris, connecting two parts of the city of Hanoi.
This steel bridge is about 2290 metres crossing the Red river in Hanoi.

It was bombed many times in order to cut off the supply route in the Vietnam War. And up til now, it has been repaired for many times.
If you look close, you'll see rebars covered with rust, which tells us the passage of time.

The sunset view from the bridge is beautiful.
Today trains, mopeds, bicycles and pedestrians use the bridge.
