[Photos] Vietnam's Best-Looking Bridges

Bridges have always been an indispensable part of Vietnam’s infrastructure, as rivers and streams spread across the country’s geographic formations.

In a recent photo competition organized by Zing, amateur shutterbugs from all over Vietnam were encouraged to submit photos depicting their favorite local scene or moment. This first compilation taken from the competition features mesmerizing shots of the nation’s major bridges.

From Hanoi to Saigon, these structures play a crucial role in connecting city districts, localities and even provinces, facilitating nationwide transport and economic growth.

Have a look at some of Vietnam’s most notable bridges below:
