Lights on Han River Bridge

Han River is located in Da Nang city Central Vietnam. At the moment there are 6 bridges built across Han River. However Han River Bridge is the first ever swing bridge built by Vietnamese engineer and people. And no one can deny that Han River Bridge plays an important role in Da Nang city’s culture and lifestyle. It becomes the iconic sightseeing in Da Nang.

At midnight, traffic is stopped from crossing the Han River Bridge and it swings on its axis to allow shipping traffic to pass along the river. Besides that you will enjoy a fantastic performance of the lights on Han River Bridge as the dark falling down to the city.

Hue – A vintage girl

Hue has a distinct beauty that combines harmoniously between the scenery and the beautiful old buildings from the ancient kings. Life here is so peaceful. When I travelled to Hue, I just want the time goes slowly so I would have enough time to enjoy the poetic beauty of this place and the mystery behind all the historic tombs of kings. I called Hue is a classic girl because of her discreet, gentle beauty but still fascinated people.

Saigon – a beautiful girl

This is the first post in a series of introducing about cities in Vietnam. As I come from there so I will have my own look at my home country. I consider these cities as young girls with specific characters of each place.

Saigon is  the first city to starting up. Why is Saigon? Because I love Saigon  very much. I am not Saigonaise but most of the beautiful time in my life is in Saigon. I call it a beautiful girl.

Her beauty comes from the past with old buildings were built by French architect.
