Long Bien is a hundred-year-old bridge connecting the two banks of the Red River. Visitors can walk on the bridge in the early morning, when the first rays of the sun hit the rusty steel pillars, or watch the sun slowly sinking below the horizon at dusk. This is also a good spot for photographers to capture great photos.

The bridge has two 2-meter wide roads and one 1-meter wide sidewalk in the middle. All materials for the bridge construction were shipped from France.
