Imitating the image of the “giant hands of Gods, pulling a strip of gold out of the land,” said Vu Viet Anh, Design Principal at TA Landscape Architecture.
A magnificent bridge was inaugurated last June in Da Nang, named “Golden Bridge” (Cau Vang in Vietnamese).
Overlooking the hills of Ba Na region, the bridge is located 1,400 meters above the forest of the city of Da Nang. Held in the air by two giant hands, it was designed to give visitors the impression of walking on a golden wire. The bridge has become an significant place for Vietnamese tours, offering breath-taking views of the wooded Ba Na hills.
The construction seems to defy the laws of gravity. It is therefore not surprising that, according to visitors, the walk gives the feeling of crossing paradise.
Located 20 kilometres from Danang, Ba Na is a tourist resort that was founded in 1919 by French colonists. Their old buildings fallen into ruins are the only remnants of this period. A century later, the place has become a hotspot for Vietnamese tourism.
Vietnam’s 3rd largest city, Da Nang, crossed by the Hàn River is located on the edge
of the East Pacific Ocean. The city offers the mountainous hinterland an outlet to the sea. Da Nang grows and grows again, with the ambition of becoming the Vietnamese Las Vegas. On the beach side, the promoters are having a blast to seduce the tourists fond of sequins, rhinestones and flashy casinos.
More locals and more Asians, Ba Na is an ideal place for those who prefer to look for fresh air during the hot season. The government in 1986 recognized the site as a nature reserve. In particular, we can observe black bears and other wildlife flora and fauna.
Ba Na destiny flourished after construction of the cable car allowing tourists to climb the 1400 meters in altitude. The Golden Bridge welcomes millions of visitors every year and has become very popular. This place is an must-see. After visiting this place remark, many choose to go to Hue or Hoi An, two other unforgettable places.
