Bridge Landmark
Visit Trang Tien Bridge where the north and south of Hue meet. Built on the place of a bamboo bridge, the construction stands as a legacy of the architect Gustave Eiffel and the French Governor Levecque who saw a need for the city’s modernization. Finished in 1899, the concrete bridge cost over 400,000,000 dong at the time; however, the structure has to be renovated in 1906. Take a walk on 401 m (1,315 ft) and enjoy the gentle river breeze as you overlook the city landscape.

  • Hue has pedestrian streets and parks that are on the river banks. This Bridge has protected pedestrian walkway that connects the parks on either side of Huong Giang. There are runners, walkers, and Tai-Chi practitioners all using the bridge at the same time, just weave around. Using the bridges that cross the river you can create a running loop in the early morning. Also a great place to capture sunrise images. There are multiple outdoor cafes where people meet to socialize over coffee with views of the river, bridges, and river traffic. The rhythmic exhaust notes from the passing boats doesn't disturb the morning calm but add to the experience as the hot coffee wake the senses.
  • Que Toi...My birth place...The re-build of our ancestor worthship house.
  • Nice WWII style metal bridge, but nothing special.
  • beautiful day and night with night market under the bridge
  • The bridge is so beautiful at night.
