Update: Oct 07, 2014
Rong (Dragon) Bridge in the central city of Da Nang has been listed among top 30 gorgeous bridges over the world by a famous tourism website, Viralnova.

Some of the listed bridges are small, some are huge. Some are pinnacles of cutting-edge engineering technology. Some are ancient, but have stood the test of time. Some are deceptively simple, and some are incredibly intricate.

The Dragon Bridge features 166 meters of undulating steel in the shape of a giant fire-breathing dragon flying towards the East Sea. The main span of the 37.5m-wide bridge is bookended by two 128m side sections, with a head and tail on each end of those. The whole construction weighs 8,164 tonnes and stretches 666m in length.

It is a bridge with unique aesthetic and creative characteristics, and incorporates complex technologies. Spanning the Han River, the bridge connects Da Nang International Airport with the city's most popular beaches and the downtown area. 

Tops on the list are Infinity Bridge of the UK, Puente Nuevo of Spain, Moon Bridge of Italy, Dyavolski Most of Bulgaria, Banpo Bridge of the Republic of Korea, and Animal Crossing Bridge of the Netherlands.
