To celebrate the 38th anniversary of the liberation of Da Nang, the Vietnam government built this awesome dragon-shaped bridge over the Han River. And to ensure that it totally one-upped the light show on San Francisco's Bay Bridge, this one is covered in over 2,500 LED lights—oh, and it also breathes fire.

Construction on the 545-foot structure began way back in 2009, and at a final cost of around $85 million, it's finally ready to intimidate anyone who dares to cross. But fire breathing isn't its only trick. During festivals—or presumably nearby fires—the bridge's dragon head can also blast water into the air. Which, admittedly, is a little less intimidating.
