The Han River flows through the central area of Da Nang and it has played an important part in the development of the city’s tourism sector. The river has become an attraction for everyone touring the city.
The Han River Bridge, a suspension bridge connecting the east and west sides of the city, was inaugurated on 29 March 2000. It was the only swing bridge in Viet Nam and it swings open daily during the early morning hours. The decorative lighting on the bridge and along the two banks of the river make it very colourful and attractive in the evening. The many service facilities along the two river banks, some with modern amenities, provide for the needs of tourists visiting the city.
