New ‘Golden Bridge’ In Vietnam Is Hands-Down The Coolest Bridge Ever: Tourists visiting the Ba Na Mountains in central Vietnam may feel restrained by the gods as they stroll along the “golden bridge”, a catwalk hanging from the abyss and supported by huge open hands towards the sky that seems to spring from Montana.

Since its opening, last June, this 150-meter long structure erected at 1,400 meters of altitude near the city of Danang has attracted thousands of tourists and curious people who have turned it into a viral phenomenon.

I am very surprised that you have received so much attention. I never had this, “comments to Efe, somewhat overwhelmed, Vu Viet Anh, architect of the company TA Corporation, responsible for the design.

Although the hands have the appearance of moss-covered rock, as if they had been there for centuries exposed to the elements, Anh clarifies that they are made of steel and fiberglass, while the golden bridge (‘Cau Vang’ in Vietnamese, also translated as’ golden bridge ‘) is made of stainless steel.

The hands symbolize the god of the mountain drawing a vein of gold from its entrails. When we designed the project we wanted the landscape theme to be the god of the mountain. He is not the god of any concrete religion, “he says.

The bridge has also become a magnet for photographers such as Dai Ngo, who traveled there in July from Ho Chi Minh (former Saigon) to take prenuptial images of a couple and was impressed by the uniqueness of the place.

It is a place halfway between earth and heaven when I felt euphoria and also that I was in a sacred place. The constant change of climate, with rain, sun, wind, creates many emotions. It is a place to dream, “he says.

The hands that hold the bridge with the index and the thumb are the most spectacular part, but the more than 10 thousand visitors that visit the tourist complex every day can also contemplate the deity’s nose, legs, eyes, and ears.

Viet ANH explains that the idea was you could not see the body of the whole god but only loose parts

Viet Anh explains that “the idea was that you could not see the body of the whole god, only loose parts”.

The hands, he adds, with the bridge are the most spectacular because they create a path through the sky, over the mountains. They have also been better because the other parts we designed were built too quickly. “

This old mountain station created by the French settlers in 1919 attracts 3.7 million annual tourists, mostly Chinese, who are delighted by the spectacular nature of the natural landscape, wax figures of celebrities and the visit to a medieval castle on the top of the mountain.

Since 2013 visits have multiplied thanks to the construction of the highest and longest non-stop cable car in the world according to the Guinness book, 5.8 kilometers long and 368 meters high.

The work of the cable car was awarded to the company Sun Group, the same in charge of building the golden bridge and to undertake the next phase of the project designed by Vu Viet Anh and his team: another bridge over the abyss that evokes a long wavy fairy hair by the wind.
