Vietnam’s Epic ‘Golden Bridge’ Will Definitely Take Your Breath Away

Vietnam’s Epic ‘Golden Bridge’ Will Definitely Take Your Breath Away

August 1, 2018
A bridge in Vietnam that looks like it is being held by two massive stone hands is wowing tourists with its incredibly unique design.
The “Golden Bridge” can be found about 1,400 meters (4,593 feet) above sea level at Ba Na Hills in Da Nang, Vietnam. It stretches 150 meters (492 feet), and curves in an elegant and unique design with a golden pathway lined with purple Lobelia Chrysanthemums.

The main highlight of this attraction is the two huge hands that appear to be supporting the bridge.
The hands were actually not carved from stone, according to TA Landscape Architecture, the company who designed the bridge.

We designed the skeleton of the hands and covered them with steel meshes,” a representative told Bored Panda. “Then we finished with fiberglass and added the theming on it. The entire construction of the bridge took about a year.”

The project, which was built by the Sun Group, sits on top of a forest that was once developed by French colonists as a hill station in 1919. The only remnants of the French occupants that tourists can see in the area from a cable car are the crumbling remains of their holiday homes.

The project also has other attractions worth noting such as a replica of a French medieval village — including a faux castle and a cathedral — a wax museum featuring life-size statues of Lady Gaga and Michael Jordan, manicured gardens, and the aforementioned cable car.
