The “Golden Bridge” in Vietnam has become a tourist magnet after being compared to scenes from “Game Of Throne” and “Lord Of The Rings”.
The newly opened “Golden Bridge” or “Cau Vang” is held by two giant concrete hands emerging from trees in the Ba Na hills of central Vietnam.
The bridge near Da Nang City is part of a plan to make Vietnam a major tourist destination.
Nestled in the heart of the wooded hills of central Vietnam, there are two giant hands of concrete emerging from the trees, supporting a sparkling golden bridge where many happy visitors come to take selfies on the last and very eccentric tourist attraction from the country. Suspended at 1,400 meters above sea level, the structure has eight sections and is 150 meters long.
“Cau Vang” or the “Golden Bridge” in Vietnam has attracted many tourists since its opening in June, eager to see a new architecture famous for its unusual design
This time, images will not be enough, here is a video to contemplate the splendor of this urban architecture.
The bridge was designed to evoke the image of “giant hands of the gods, pulling a gold band out of the ground”, said Vu Viet Anh, director of design at TA Landscape Architecture.
The pedestrian footbridge, designed by TA Landscape Architecture in Ho Chi Minh City, is located at over 1,000 meters above sea level and extends over the treetops from the edge of a lush cliff, providing tourists with breathtaking views on the majestic underlying landscape. .
The spectacular attractions have flourished in Vietnam in recent years. The latest, an installation, “Crystal Cloud”, composed of 58,000 Swarovski crystals sparkling in the rice fields of the north of the country, was inaugurated this year. The communist country is seeking to attract tourists, aspiring to become a staple destination in Southeast Asia.
It welcomed 13 million foreign visitors in 2017, mostly Chinese, far from the 35 million tourists who came to Thailand in 2017.
