During the war , Dakrong Bridge was an iron bridge, which was very important for transportation in the southern battlefield for national liberation. After 1975, with the help of Cuba, the old iron bridge was replaced by a suspension bridge with a length of 100m and a width of 6m. In 1999 this bridge collapsed. After that, once again, with the help and concern of our friend Cuba and the central government, a very modern cable-stayed tree was erected for travel and became a tourist destination that many people came to visit. Dakrong River winding along the historic National Highway 9 is an important connection point between Dong Ha and Lao Bao. This is an indispensable part of the complex of Dakrong scenic spots .
