You’ll Want To Walk Over The Golden Bridge In Vietnam
The new Golden Bridge in Vietnam is held up by the hands of a giant
Have you ever seen a bridge that’s held up by giant hands stemming from the earth? Well you’re about to. This new bridge outside of Da Nang in Vietnam, known as the Golden Bridge recently opened to the public and looks like something out of a movie. The structure stands 1,400 meters above sea level, sitting right above the Ba Na Hills and oversees amazing views of the surrounding countryside.
The curved golden walkway measure around 150 meters and is lined with purple Lobelia Chrysanthemums. The focal point of the design features two god-like hands extending from the earth which support walkers as they pass by. The hands are reminiscent of one of the giants from Shadow of the Colossus.
Designed by TA Landscape Architecture, the firm says that the entire construction of the bridge took about a year to build and the hands, which appear to be made of stone are actually made of fiberglass. The structure is part of a $2 billion investment to help bring in even more than the 1.5 million people already visiting the country each year.
