The most Romantic 'Love Roads' in Hanoi (part two)

1. Long Bien Bridge

There is a place where is extremely exciting for not only lovers but also the single people- Long Bien Bridge. This bridge was finished in 1902 and was designed by the great French architect Gustave Eiffel (the designer of Eiffel Tower – the famous tower all over the world).

By far, Long Bien Bridge has become the bridge of love of young people in Hanoi because there are so many couples in love having attached "love locks" onto the bridge with the hope that the remembrance "lock" will tie 2 people forever, and they would never break up and be far way from each other.

In consciousness of Hanoians, Long Bien Bridge is not only the first bridge connecting the banks of the Red River but also a place witnessing many magnanimous and pathetic historical events of Hanoi. Today, although Long Bien Bridge is not the traffic artery, it still proudly stands there to witness the construction of many modern and sizeable bridges, and to witnesse a Hanoi which is changing vigorously each day, each hour.

2. Phan Dinh Phung Street

With about 1.5 km long, Phan Dinh Phung street stretches from Mai Xuan Thuong Street to Hang Cot Street. This street crosses the streets including: Hoang Dieu, Dang Dung, Nguyen Tri Phuong and Hang Bun. This is one of the streets which have the widest sidewalk with old dracontomelum trees in Hanoi. There is a special thing is that this is the street having two rows of trees on the same sidewalk. Dracontomelum leaf fall season brings many memories of a time when students went to school. In the last days of the autumn, it is easy to find a peaceful and romantic setting in the heart of a noisy and boisterous Hanoi.

Being considered as one of the most beautiful streets in Hanoi, Phan Dinh Phung Street attracts many tourists. Coming here, they not only admire the historical buildings such as Bac Mon (North Gate), the old French villas, but also are immersed in a green space.

Wandering along the street, you'll always catch the bikes with the bamboo baskets that sell seasonal flowers. They are peach blossom signing the spring, lilies in April, lotus in early summer, marigolds in autumn….

3. Thanh Nien road (Youth Road)

Situated between West Lake and Truc Bach Lake, Thanh Nien Road (also called Youth Road) has long become the meeting point of the couples who prefer to confide in each other and see the sunset in the windy lakeside.

Thanh Nien- the most beautiful road in Hanoi

Thanh Nien Road was originally a dam which was built in the early 17th century to keep the fish in Truc Bach Lake. The road is nearly 1km long, starting from the Yen Phu slope to the junction of Quan Thanh - Thuy Khue.

In sultry summer evenings, both roadway and sidewalks are crowded with people coming to get some fresh air. In the cold winter days, there are many people drinking hot tea inside teahouses. This is also the meeting place of the couples in love sitting in the lakeside. It is also the reason why Thanh Nien is called the most romantic road in Hanoi, some people even called it "The Road of Love".
