When In Danang: Part One

When in Danang, ride across the bridges.

The Han River slices the city in half, but no worries. There are at least four bridges that connect the two halves and I never tire of zooming back and forth across them. 

On our first full day in Vietnam, we took a long, rambling ride around the city and crossed three: 

the Han Bridge, 
the so-called Dragon Bridge which literally has a bright yellow metal sculpture of a dragon running down the middle of the span
and this one, which we call the bridge to Monkey Mountain. 

And on this first full day of our visit - a very hot day indeed - we drove to the highest point of the span, pulled our motorbikes over to the side, and took a few moments to drink in our surroundings. 

When in Danang, ride across the bridges.
