When crossing this bridge of almost 1 km you get a great view of the Suriname river, the bends it makes. You also get a very nice view op Paramaribo City, at day and night the view is worth seeing.

The bridge connects two districts of Suriname with each other. Can be busy and slow due to the amount of traffic during rush hour. Drive over the bridge in the evening. You'll be rewarded with an awesome view.

This is the bridge that connects the city center with the neighboring province. It is very busy during morning and evening commutes. You can go under the bridge and see fishermen, or near the taxi ranks for traveling to other areas.

I dont understand why this is seen as a tourist attraction. There are far more nicer things to visit in Surinam.
