Locate in Bana Hills, Da Nang city, Vietnam, the golden bridge has been wowing tourists from around the world ever since it opened in June 2018. This 500 foot-long pedestrian bridge was built to help connect a cable car station ( which also holds the Guiness Records for the highest and longest single-cable cable car system) to another part of the mountain theme park.
Before the bridge construction, the steep difference in height between the 2 location was an inconvenience for tourists but the bridge was also built to provide a scenic view and to serve as a tourist attraction.
It beautiful design includes two giant stone hands that were made to look as if they're supporting the golden structure. According to the company that designed the bridge, TA Landscape Architecture, the concept of the design revolves around God, humans and nature.
