Far away in the mountains, two moss-covered hands of God have held a golden walkway for you to cross and stumble upon some of the most stunning specimens of Mother Nature’s bounty. To walk on this bridge is to soak in spell-binding views of the endless sky right above your head, majestic mountains in the distance and the lush forest below. You could almost mistake you are in heaven, if you weren’t able to see very human cable cars below, moving in a very ant-like manner.
Say Hello to Vietnam’s brand-new local and tourist obsession – the 150-meter long Golden Bridge, constructed near Danang in the Ba Na Hills of the country. About 3280 feet above the sea level, the “Hands of God’, looking like ancient stone but made of steel, mesh and fibreglass in real, seem to be holding the bridge afloat in the sky. Designed by Ho Chi Minh City based TA Landscape Architecture, the bridge was constructed using a whopping budget of USD 2 billion.
Making a stellar entry into the list of the world’s most stunning bridges, the Golden Bridge has been a source of constant chatter of Social Media around the world, with visitors uploading enviable images clicked at this man-made marvel. If seeing just the images won’t cut it for, you could book your Vietnam holiday now for an encounter with this unusual bridge or you could wait till a connecting silver bridge is built, fashioned after ‘God’s Strand of Hair’. Other than this astonishing bridge, you could also visit the French Village and the Wax Museum as well as ride the Alpine Coaster and the record-holding cable car at this resort-style hill station of Vietnam.
