I don’t know about you, but from now on, I expect any bridge I cross to breathe fire like this dragon bridge in Vietnam does.

The $85 million project is not only a marvel of river-crossing architecture, but is pretty much the most badass bridge ever. The dragon bridge is located in Da Nang, Vietnam and not only set a record for coolest bridge ever, but also is the heaviest ever built as well. The fire-breathing bridge features six lanes for cars as well as two lanes for bicycles and pedestrians. The dragon bridge is also equipped with 15,000 Phillips LEDs that change color, taking this bridge from merely awesome to unfairly awesome. LED lights are also far more energy efficient than standard halogen bulbs, making the bridge astonishing energy efficient as well.

In a slight bit of irony considering the bridge’s fire-breathing nature, the bridge is 666-meters from end to end.
