(Scroll down for video) This has got to be the most coolest yet hottest bridge ever built and it promises to be a major tourist attraction, according to video uploaded to the internet.
Vietnam has introduced the new steel bridge that was shaped like a dragon and breathes real fire out of its mouth.
The bridge is 1,864 feet long with steel arches designed to look as a skeleton body of a dragon, which is modeled after one of the Ly Dynasty.
At night, the Dragon Bridge is illuminated by more than 2,500 LED lights and can spit giant plumes of fire or water.
The Dragon Bridge was unveiled after 38 years to the day since North Vietnamese forces captured the city during the last days of the Vietnam War. During the war, it was home to a major air base used by U.S. forces and South Vietnam.
The six-lane bridge is in the Vietnamese city of Da Nang, cost about $85 million to build and was built by the Louis Berger Group, a New Jersey construction company, and architecture firm.
"This achievement is the result of the determination of the leaders of Da Nang and the consensus of the local population," Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc said in an opening ceremony. "The government always supports Da Nang in it becoming the center of interest, cultural and economic development of the Central Highlands region as well as the country," the deputy added.
“This is really the coolest bridge I ever saw. I can’t wait to see it in person,” Huang Zuang, 49, of Staten Island, New York told YourJewishNews.com after watching the video.
Da Nang is a major port city of Vietnam and has become a backbone of economic and cultural activity in the country as well as a tourist destination.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view
