scenic viewpoints to be added to Hue’s iconic bridge

Share

In 1897, the French Resident Superior in Central Vietnam assigned Eiffel of France (known for the Eiffel Tower in Paris) to design and build the Truong Tien Bridge. The construction was completed in 1899 and the bridge has since connected the banks of the Perfume River for 114 years and is even older than the historic bridge of Long Bien in Hanoi.

 

The graceful Truong Tien Bridge has undergone many changes and ups and downs along with the ancient capital. Upon being renovated, this iconic 400-metre bridge in Vietnam’s ancient citadel of Hue will have exclusive areas for sightseeing and taking photos.
