London Bridge Chengdu 戛纳湾风情廊桥
Several bridges in Chengdu become WeChat–moments–spam this year – with Wuchaizi Bridge 五岔子大桥 definitely ranking No. 1. Chengdu‘s London Bridge is located in Huayang, and is inspired by the Camden Theatre Tower Bridge in the UK. This European(ish)-style pedestrian bridge was built in 2012. Eight red towers stand in the water and hold the suspension bridge above the Jinjiang river. At one side is a villa compound, and at the other side one Huayang‘s vegetable market, including a big restaurant. If you like running, there‘s a pretty nice trail following the river.
