Me and dad were at Serein Cafe sipping coffee and the train was departing from the station moving slowing along Long Bien Bridge, recommend people to go there around late afternoon to enjoy the sunset and the night view and to see the train departing or arriving at the station.

I walked out on it and the views of the litter and shanty-town shacks below were as interesting and telling as the condition of the much-bombed bridge itself. You have to walk a fair way to get to the part over the river. Be careful of the railing; I tore the sleeve of my shirt on a broken part, just lucky it was not my skin. Also do not step off the walk onto the roadway, because the motorbikes come very close as it is, and it would be easy to be clipped even if staying on the walkway.

Not for the faint hearted! A great view along this cast iron bridge, built by the French around the time of the eiffel tower (locals day it looks similar, if you tilt your head!) There is a small slabbed pavement but you can see down below through the gaps, so if you have a fear of heights... Probably not for you. Signs say no pedestrians, but we walked passed the police who did not care. Locals & days were walking along it. This is the only place in Vietnam where they drive on the left. Scooters only, with a train line in the middle. It's an experience! I enjoyed it!

Bridge over 100 years old and survived many attempts by the Americans during the Vietnamese armed conflict. Bridge very long and only used by motorbikes and 1 train track in the middle only a few trains cross regular, it allows you to cross the vast Red River. Bridge doesn't seem to be kept in good condition lots of damage to road, path and bridge itself. Clearly important to the local people for its daily use and its history but its not the most tourist friendly attractions. Check out bridge for its history and cultural significance but its just a bridge to foreigners.

The bridge itself is very bad conservated, there is a walk lane along with motorbike lane on each side and a railway in the middle. Be careful with the concrete blocks. The views are amazing and you can find a hidden banana plantation on opposite side of old quarter.
