If you stay near the beach area, then go along Vo Nguyen Giap street to My Khe beach, then you will see the roundabout of Vo Nguyen Giap street and Vo Van Kiet street, then turn left, go straight around 1km to another roundabout, go ahead and you can see this bridge.

Unfortunately, the local bus just work till 17.50, so you only can do this transportation at the day time. Get on the bus, mention the to the ticket money colletor (they don’t sell ticket, you just need pay to somebody) that your stop is Cham museum, then you just walk around 3 minute, and can see the bidge on your right side.

If you want to ride your motobike there, head to An Bang highway (near An Bang beach), go straight till you see a seafood restaurant named “ Thanh Hien” on your leftside, go slowly to the roundabout then turn left, go along Vo Van Kiet road, skip the next roundabout, and here our dragon is.
