Da Nang Love Lock Bridge Location
This bridge is located between the Dragon Bridge Da Nang and Han River Bridge, located towards the middle of the river so standing from here, you can admire the surrounding scenery and the other side of the city center. Coming to the Love Lock Bridge Da Nang in the evening is the most ideal because at this time, the lantern hanging along the bridge starts to light, reflecting the glittering red light down the river surface, creating an extremely romantic scenery.
Love Lock Bridge Da Nang has a length of 68m in the Han River. The bridge is designed in an arc shape and was inaugurated in 2015. And since it opened, this place has become a tourist attraction that attracts a large number of tourists. Love Lock Bridge is inspired by famous bridges in the world such as Pont des Arts (France), Hohenzollern (Germany), Tretriakovsky (Russia), or Milvio (Italy). Different in terms of design but having the same meaning that couples who love each other will come here to hang the lock with the names of the two of them, their love will be forever strong and faithful, and cannot be separated.
You can bring your own locks or buy them at the store next to the bridge. The locks here are also molded into a heart shape – the most romantic symbol of love for couples. After the lock is securely hung on the bridge, they often throw or hide the key to make sure that no one can open it.
