It's the seventh bridge over Han river, connects Da Nang city and Son Tra peninsula. One side is My Khe beach with while sand and blue sea. The other is Han river with many building along riverside. It is decorated by many lamps at night. It look so beautiful and charming all day!

My favorites bridges are in Boston it´s wonderfull and has a mazing arquitecture. The others are Vancouver´s bridges, Next to Stanly Park and in a port. Those bridges every nigth have ligths like candels Tue 26 Apr 2011 16:46:01 GMT+1 bony http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/general/expressenglish/2011/03/110331_ee_bridges_page.shtml?page=93#comment78 My favourite bridge is the Lánchíd. Becouse it’s the oldest and the most famous bridge in Budapest. It was built in 1849 by Istvan Széchenyi. It was the first bridge over Duna in Hungary. At both ends there are two lion-statues. According to the legend the lions haven’t got tongues[I think you mean "tongues" from the Moderator]. But it’s not true. Unfortunatetly at the end of the second world war the German army detonated it. Then the bridge was rebuilt in 1949. I’d like to build a bridge to visit my cousins.

It connects the south of the USA and Key West (group of islands). And it divides the Gulf of Mexico and the Antlantic ocean. When I was going on this bridge, I was excited of the pictureque view.

It was a kind of moveable bridge before. I have never seen any moveable bridge. I regret I can't see it moving any more. In my country, there is no that kind of construction. On the other hand, I think the Golden Gate Bridge is a spectucular architecture.

I've never watched any famous bridge in a distance to feel how gorgeous it was. But this topic reminded me of a small bamboo bridge located in the Hsi-Tou Forest Park of Taiwan. It stood across a pond no wider than 15 m. During the sping time, workers would tear down the old bridge and rebuild a new one. They started from both banks with several long bamboo poles. They curved the poles skillfully. Finally, both side met precisely at the very high, middle point above the pond. This beautiful arch was thus constructed. Many love stories proceeded upon this bridge, including my first one. Though I can no longer picture my first lover's face.

He painted it several times and you can clearly see how his vision got worse with the years, but even in the later pictures one can recognize the bridge an it looks lovely, nevertheless!

It’s in front of the ancient city and it’s broken, so it can’t link anything. But when you are watching it, you can link with your mind everything.The second my favourite bridge is Ha'Penny Bridge, in Dublin: because, when you cross over it, you are going to arrive in Temple Bar, where you can enjoy your life![Message edited by Moderator] Thu 07 Apr 2011 18:23:51 GMT+1 yxzhao http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/general/expressenglish/2011/03/110331_ee_bridges_page.shtml?page=62#comment52 I can't exactly tell which is my favourite bridge.But I think there are many bridges that I have ever seen in China are so great.

I remember of the day of the festival of Hachiman gu shrine in my city, when I was as young as the age of my having been to a kindergarten.

Its name comes from the merchants who used to sales their goods near the bridge, but some people say that the name comes from the lies that young soldiers used to tell to their girls while taking a walk on the bridge. Nowdays, it is one of the must seen in Sibiu and in the summer a preferred place for taking photos for the wedding album.

I liked a bridge in the city of Dessau in Germany that lies not straightly from one bank of the river to another but is somewhat curved, with arched high railings. It looks nice.If I could, I would connect by bridges all people who miss each other. As for me, I'd like to have brdges to my relatives living abroad and to my web-friends from my fave website.

I like it because it´s located in a neighborhood full of history. I also like the bridge over the Temperley train station.

Having eliminated the most beautiful and the most vertiginous I would retain Ironbridge near Telford where I used to travel some years ago. I was impressed by this iron structure completed in the 1770s by engineers who had to deal with a material never used in such a big building. Even though iron was used in solid form they built an elegant bridge, the first ever realised and still in use, before the mid 19th century and the emergence of iron or steel construction.

My province looks like an island, surrounding by rivers. We formerly get out of our land by using ferry-boat. After that, a bridge is built to connect our province with the rest of world. It's so excited! That bridge help us trade with another province of Vietnam.

We had a New Year´s Eve party with a couple of friends close to the Sydney Harbour Bridge in 2007. We spent almost a year by studying English and traveling across Australia. Sydney Harbour Bridge is an iconic symbol of both Sydney and Australia and wonderful period of life for me.

That's a very wonderful thing. I like an Spanish bridge, near Portugal: The bridge of Alcántara. It was designed by romans almost twnty centuries ago. Searche it on the Internet. It's solid but not rough at all. Good morning from Spain!

My favourite bridge by legendary, it is the bridge of Brooklyn in New York. One of imposing length and that if I know is the Zárate-Brazo Largo bridge in Argentina, that hangs on the Parana river. If I could make construct of a bridge, I would do it uniting the province of Santa Cruz with Tierra Del Fuego in Argentina, on the strait of Magallanes. A bridge is needed there.

All of them are full of history, mystery and enchantment.

This bridge has two cuverd tracks supported by a single concrete mast. It’s located in São Paulo, Brazil, over the Pinheiros River. At the end of December lights are put up on the cables and illuminated to create color effects like those on a Christmas tree. The last time that I crossed this bridge was after The Beyonce's Show, (I am.....World Tour) in Morumbi Stadium on February 6, 2010.

I think it's the oldest brigde in Valencia, and has its own character. Is made of stone and it's available only for walkers. The brigde is very massive and there are two beautiful sculptures.
