Dragon Bridge Da Nang, An Hải Tây, Sơn Trà, Đà Nẵng
Da Nang, which is home to more than a million people, is divided by the Han River. The Dragon Bridge Da Nang (it’s called Cầu Rồng in Vietnamese) is a bridge over the Han River connecting the city’s downtown and the airport with the main beautiful My Khe beach and resort area. There are nine bridges over the Han River in all, some of them are lit up brightly at night and the Dragon Bridge is the new one with a little bit more light and specially the dragon bridge performs fire and water blowing every weekend night.
The dragon bridge Da Nang was designed by American architecture firm The Louis Berger Group. Berger’s design also included a wide riverfront plaza that stretches along the banks of the Han river. The aptly-named Dragon Bridge, was designed and built in the shape of a dragon and so to breathe fire and water as a dragon too.

You should not miss this show while in Da Nang every weekend at about 9 p.m, people gather in this plaza and line the sides of the bridge to watch the dragon’s head spout fire and water while various-colored LED lights-illuminate the dragon’s head and body. The best way to enjoy the show is on boat cruising along Han river at night. You can buy ticket to have a seat on a dragon boat and going along the river or also you could have your dinner on the boat while cruising.
