Ever since I was a child, bridges have always intrigued me. The way they are constructed, the way they enhance the beauty of the water underneath, and the mere idea behind their existence; to join the two sides of a body which would have otherwise never met, have always fascinated me. Being a civil engineering student myself, I've had the chance to visit and study about some really beautiful and interesting bridges.
I recently went on a foreign exchange program to Singapore and Malaysia where I saw two of the world's most beautiful bridges - The Helix Bridge in Singapore which is shaped like a DNA and the Langkawi Sky Bridge which is one of the biggest cable-stayed bridges, constructed by bringing each element of the bridge to the mountain and putting it all together. And how can I write about bridges without mentioning the ones back home: the Howrah Bridge in Kolkata which a suspension bridge constructed entirely of steel and bears the weight of all kinds of vehicles and the Root Bridge in Meghalaya which is nothing but a natural boon.
I'm sharing my account of the four most beautiful bridges that I've come across in Asia. Hope this inspires you to go see them
