Long Biên Bridge is a historic cantilever bridge across the Red River in Hanoi, Vietnam. …

2.4 kilometres (1.5 mi) in length …

Today trains, mopeds, bicycles and pedestrians use the dilapidated bridge …

No cars. 🙂

Some say Gustave Eiffel was one of the designers. If so, none of the rust has been removed since he was here.

Down in the flood plain, things look very lush. I wonder how often these plantations are under water?
