In the mountains above Danang, Vietnam sits a unique piece of bridge design. Winding its way around a 150-meter course lined with flowers, a golden bridge shimmers against the Ba Na Hills, supported by a pair of giant hands. Designed to make visitors feel like they’re taking a stroll on a shimmering thread stretching across the hands of gods, the “Golden Bridge” has attracted a throng of guests since its opening in June, all eager to see a piece of this novel architecture.
The Golden Bridge opened to visitors in early June, in the tourist retreat of Thien Thai Garden. The bridge sits 1,400 meters above sea level, an altitude which creates the illusion of a silk strip hiding in the clouds above Danang.
The scheme is reportedly part of a $2 billion project to entice tourists to the area. From the bridge, visitors have a panoramic view of the green mountains of Nui Chua and can’t stop taking photos to preserve great moments.
