Outside of Da Nang, there is an entirely novel bridge that has everyone in Vietnam gushing over its stunning aesthetic. Instead of pillars, it is supported by two enormous stone hands.
The Golden Bridge spans a gap in the Ba Na Hills at an elevation of about 1,400 meters above sea level. Amazing scenery can be seen in every direction. Lobelia chrysanthemums provide a golden accent to the walkway. As you stroll along its 150 m length, swooping around in a graceful manner, the sculpted hands will grab your attention.
This brand-new bridge was designed by TA Landscape Architecture. The hands look like they’re hewn from stone, but they’re actually a man-made replica. They designed the hands’ skeleton and covered it with steel meshes, the architectural firm said. After that, we applied the theme and finished with fiberglass. It took about a year to build the bridge from start to finish.
Because of Vietnam’s attractiveness, an increasing number of tourists are flocking there. The annual visitor count is already at 1.5 million, and this bridge is just one piece of a $2 billion investment to increase that number. If you want to get a better look at this incredible bridge, you can either travel to see it in person or look at the pictures below.
