The Golden Bridge in Da Nang is standing 1,400m above sea level and offers majestic views over the Ba Na hills
Vietnam is one of the countries that can take your breath away with untamed nature, one of the world’s most colourful and tastiest cuisines, and some specific driving rules – basically, the stronger takes it all.
From June this year, people have a chance to see another unique feature the country offers. Hovering over the Ba Na Hills tourist area near Da Nang, the 1,400 m high and 150 m long Golden Bridge now “supports the sky from falling”.
The golden-like structure offering majestic views over the landscape is decorated with large hands that look like ones of a giant buried in the mountains. And the pathway through which the visitors pass is surrounded by Lobelia Chrysanthemum planted alongside.
The designer of the bridge was the TA Landscape Architecture company. The representatives have explained that despite looking like they are carved from stone, the hands are actually made of something else.
“We designed the skeleton of the hands and covered them with steel meshes,” they said.
“Then we finished with fibreglass and added the theming on it. The entire construction of the bridge took about a year.”
With an unprecedented tourist boom that consist of more than 1.5 million visitors per year, Vietnamese authorities now contribute large investments to enhance the market.
Even the Golden Bridge was funded by a part of the total of $2 billion investment and its aim is to attract even more holidaymakers to enjoy the blossoming country.
And we cannot lie to you, this scenery is more than convincing.
