Banpo Bridge is a one-of-a-kind bridge in the world that provides a captivating and amazing view. It is a bridge located in Seoul, the capital of South Korea. It is a unique bridge on top of Jamsu Bridge, forming a ‘double deck’ bridge. The latter bridge has the ability to submerge under water if the water level rises. Banpo Bridge is a girder bridge and was completed in 1982 and was transformed into a gigantic rainbow fountain with nearly 10,000 LED nozzles that run along both sides, shooting out 190 tons of water per minute.

By simply looking at the Gateshead Millennium Bridge, one will not say that this structure is indeed a bridge. This unique bridge is a pedestrian and cyclist tilt bridge that spans the River Tyne in England, UK. This amazingly designed bridge is often referred to as the ‘Winking Eye Bridge’ because of its elliptical shape and its rotational movement.

Nice one; I have been across the Banpo Bridge in Seoul hundreds of times the past 20 years that I have lived in Korea.

I love that one in South Korea. I think it’s amazing. However, you won’t see me near that last one.

Hope you’re safe from the flood where you live.

Gateshead Millennium Bridge is a must-see for anyone who are interested in architecture . Moving bridge over the river is just Magnificent to see!!!!! the bridge tilts at 12 o’clock noon every day and you should lucky enough to see it tilt as this is the only tilting bridge in this world.
