The “Golden Bridge” in Vietnam has attracted hordes of guests since it opened in the Ba Na Hills near Danang in June. It is designed to make visitors feel like they’re taking a stroll on a shimmering thread stretching across the hands of gods.
Images of the bridge have gone viral on social media, much to the surprise of the architect who had no idea it would attract so much attention. “We’re proud that our product has been shared by people all over the world,” said Vu Viet Anh, principal designer and founder of TA Landscape Architecture.
At 150 metres long (490 feet), the bridge snakes through the forest high up in mountains first developed by French colonists as a hill station in 1919. Today the area is a major tourist attraction, boasting a cable car, replica French medieval village — including faux castle and cathedral — manicured gardens and a wax museum featuring statues of Lady Gaga and Michael Jordan.
The only remnants of the original French occupants are the crumbling remains of their holiday homes that can still be spotted from the cable car. But visitors are mostly interested in the newly built Cau Vang, which means “Golden Bridge” in Vietnamese. “The bridge is beautiful with an amazing architectural style, from here we can see Danang City, it’s so nice,” said Nguyen Trung Phuc.
