Impressive old Bridge. Facilities are non existent and there is one elevator that brings you up to level 5. But what a view from the top. Worth a visit.

This bridge is the pride of Nanjing. Specially the view of the city from this bridge is speechless. It is definitely a good experience of travelling over the bridge and enjoying the scenic beauty of the Yangtze river.

A great place to have a view of Yangtze River and the Bridge is the Viewing Tower. And the tower itself is a great place too. The Bridge is the first Yangtze Bridge we built by ourselves.

Three reasons for visiting this attraction: One - This is the longest dual function bridge of highway and railway listed in the Guinness Book of Records. Two - It was constructed and built by Chinese engineers. The Soviet architects abandoned the project when relationship between Mao's China and the Soviet Russia turned sour. It was Mao's symbol of pride to... More

If you like history and mythical creation, it is worthwhile: the bridge was planned by the Soviet, but when the Chinese Communists split, the Soviet engineers were called to abandon the project. The bridge was concluded under Mao by Chinese and... More

One of first big construction of the China after the end of WW II, now it is grey and sad but still a huge piece of engineering. Walk on it to have direct feeling of the witness of the river and of the number of boats transporting goods.

There is a giant statue of Mao at the entering and you will go up by lift and see the bridge and the river. The bridge has a long history but that''s it.

As the longest river in Asia and 3rd longest river in the world, is said to be the cradle of Chinese civilization. The Nanjing Yangtze River Bridge is a double-decked road-rail truss bridge across the Yangtze River between Pukou and Xiaguan in Nanjing. It was the first heavy bridge designed and built using Chinese expertise.
