The Vietnamese city of Da Nang has built a bridge in the shape of a dragon that alternately exhales fire and water.  The bridge was erected in commemoration of the 38th anniversary of the end of the American-Vietnam war.

The bridge is covered with over 2,500 LED lights stretching for 568 meters, and connects the city’s international airport to its local beaches.  The dragon shape was chosen in honor of the ancient Ly Dynasty, which used the mythical beast as its symbol.

The six-lane bridge crosses the Han River and cost $88 million to complete. It was designed by the US-based Ammann & Whitney Consulting Engineers with Louis Berger Group.
