Walk Through Vietnam’s “Golden Hands!”
Look at this amazing new bridge in Ba Na Hills, Vietnam!
Since it opened to the public in early June, the Cau Vang (Golden Bridge) on the top of Da Nang’s Ba Na Hills has become one of the most talked about bridges in the world!
What an amazing work of art!
As Reuters reports:
“Emerging from a mountainside 4,600 feet above sea level, two giant hands appear to hold a thin gold thread. Only it’s not a thread at all, but a nearly 500-foot-long bridge. Cau Vang or the Golden Bridge, which recently opened in Vietnam’s Ba Na Hills after about a year of construction, is the latest architectural feat to make waves around the world.”
The Reuters story goes on to say:
“as if the mountain itself has sprouted limbs” of weathered stone, dotted with what appears to be green moss. They were designed to mimic the “hands of Gods, pulling a strip of gold out of the land,” says Vu Viet Anh of TA Landscape Architecture in Ho Chi Minh City, which designed the new pedestrian bridge in Thien Thai Garden. Per the BBC, a second, connecting bridge of silver, to resemble a god’s strand of hair, is also in the works.

What a unique bridge! It is such a perfect blend with nature – and it reminded me of this corkscrew walkway in Denmark:

I would love to travel to Vietnam, and this is just another reason why!
