But their youngest Golden Bridge is amusing travelers from far and wide and it immediately become an unmissable symbol of Da Nang and Vietnam's trending tours.

Located in Ba Na Hills, in Hòa Vang, on top of the Da Nang mountain, this 150-metre long, five metre wide, pedestrian bridge supported by two columns in the form of gigantic hands, stands 1,400 metres above sea level, overlooking the Da Nang City surrounded by gardens.

The unique design of the Golden Bridge is the prodigy of the extremely talented and creative TA Landscape Architecture, who designed and architected this wonder.

The bridge has a timber deck with stainless steel handrails coloured golden and those massive hands that appear to be carved from stone are, in fact, constructed from fibreglass and wire mesh positioned around steel supports.

Overgrown with plants, and decorated with cracks and moss to make them look like aged stone ruins, they look as though they were there since the ancient times although the bridge has been opened in June 2018.

The Golden Bridge is the addition to the Sun World Ba Na Hills amusement park. The walkway is at the top of the Ba Na Hills, accessible by a 20-minute cable car ride up the hill. The entrance fee to the amusement park includes the cable car to the Golden Bridge.
