So last Saturday, I finally had to chance to stop at Cau Phu My and marvel at this megastructure. It was pure concrete and steel exuding raw power. Despite the rushing vehicles and the jolt when a truck would swoosh by, I felt safe.
From this side of the bridge (D2), there is a steady incline for up to 500 meters. Am not sure what the angle is but it’s not that steep but what would kill you is the length.
This cable-stayed bridge was constructed from March 2007 to September 2009. So yeah, we were here in Saigon already when this opened.
This area is actually quite popular for couples. At sunset, you’d often sea couples on their motorbikes make a stop and watch the sun as it disappears while sipping ca phe sua da sold by vendors.
And how can you not make a step when it affords you an amazing view of the city!
When barges pass by with their heavy load, I’m always amazed how they can remain afloat in the water. Sometimes, it’s just their load showing on the surface!
