This bridge seemed to be a source of pride for each local we encountered, and it is really a beautiful structure with lovely views. However, at almost all times of day it was so crowded with people that it was very difficult to enjoy. The large tour groups would frequently stop and block virtually the entire width of the bridge. By afternoon it was packed, and we were there in late March before the major crowds. It seemed like earlier in the morning it was a bit easier to appreciate the architecture, the views and the music.
