Love Bridge and “Carp Turns into A Dragon” Statue
The two places are really becoming the new “check-in” sites in Da Nang, attracting thousands of visits, presenting a modern and romantic side of the city. Built-in 2015 right at Tran Hung Dao Street, the bridge’s location is just perfect to watch the dragon bridge, sunset and fireworks. The bridge is 70m long, inspired by many other love bridges across the world – a place lovers come to declare their love, seek for a symbol of remembrance or just enjoy their time together.
The most impressive thing is the hundreds of red-heart-shaped lanterns hung across the bridge, shining bright when the night comes. And you really can’t miss the trademark feature of any love bridge – the love locks. You can buy one lock for about VND 80,000.
The statue “carp turns into a dragon” is made based on a legend with the same name, telling a story of patience, dedication and determination would turn even the smallest things into greatness.
