Saigon's Anh Sao "Starlight" Bridge ♥ Nocturnal Spectacle of Light Water and Color



The Anh Sao (Starlight) Bridge is located in the heart of the international commercial and financial district of Phu My Hung. The first modern pedestrian bridge of Vietnam, it cost VND50 billion (about US$2.5 million) to construct and was officially inaugurated in April 2010.

While many stop by to enjoy the beautiful scenery, others want to experience the splendour of a 170m-long walk amongst the LED-lit stars (simulated by the lights on the ground).

The solar powered lights collect energy during the day using specially designed battery panels located on the sides of the bridge.

The bridge, with its illuminated path and waterfalls, is a scenic feature drawing a lot of visitors.

Nuzzled along a beautiful river promenade with a fresh cool breeze flowing all the time, Anh Sao Bridge is an architectural symphony which perfectly harmonizes with the natural setting to create an ideal destination for local residents and visitors to enjoy.
