Demerara Harbour Bridge Reviews
Так как правительство планирует построить новый современный мост, то надо обязательно проехать по этому старому понтонному мосту которому уж точно больше 50 лет и посетить другую сторону Демерары. more »Since the government plans to build a new modern bridge, it is necessary to drive on this old pontoon bridge which is certainly more than 50 years old and visit the other side of Demerara.
I would recommend to visit the place between 5-6 to see the birds next to the river. Is an amazing picture. However, the bridge is not really interesting, but is a floating bridge. more »
I grewup with the bridge and I'll have to that that it was never my favorite. But going back there now I can see and feel the improvement.
Good place to visit and see a large floating bridge in the world.
