The Lover Bridge used to be a chain bridge and functioned as lookout. Today it has become a popular tourist attraction on Wuzhizhou Island. But why it's called the "Lover Bridge"? This is because when people walked on it, the bridge always swung and ladies usually clung to their lovers tightly.

However, for safety reasons, the bridge was reconstructed into what is now, a wooden bridge. In 2013, popular Chinese film "Personal Tailor" was filmed at the site, making it widely-known by tourists from home and abroad.
