We’re Not Making Up This Bridge That Looks Like a Giant Dragon And Breathes Fire

If you’re going to drop big dollars on a new bridge, you may as well do it with style. This 666-meter bridge just opened in Vietnam. It’s been under construction since summer 2009, and it looks like a dragon. It also happens to breathe fire.

To say the Dragon Bridge is an impressive architectural structure is an understatement. It weighs in at 1,000 tons which makes it the biggest steel arch bridge in the world. The mythical creature has a lighting system with 15,000 LEDs that allow it to change color, and let’s not forget it can spew fire or water from it’s mouth.

The bridge cost a whopping $85 million. That’s nothing to sneeze fire at.

Check out more images and a video after the break.
