In the mountains above Da Nang, Vietnam sits a rare piece of bridge design. It is called The Golden Bridge, a 490 feet long pedestrian bridge in the Bà Nà Hills resort. The Golden Bridge is designed to connect the cable car station with the gardens and to provide a scenic overlook for tourist attractions.
The five-meter wide, pedestrian bridge is supported by simple steel with the two giant stone hands acting purely as decoration. The Golden Bridge has a timber deck with stainless steel handrails colored golden.
It creates a walkway in the sky, among the foggy and fairy-like lands of Ba Na Mountain. The bridge loops nearly back around to itself, and hands are designed to appear to support the structure. The golden bridge is avoiding a steep incline. The bridge opened to the public in June 2018. It is the latest tourist attraction in Da Nang.
Moreover, earlier this site was an American base during the Vietnam War. Currently this is a hot vacation spot for tourists. The Golden Bridge hands are decorated with cracks and moss to make them look like aged stone ruins. The remarkable appearance of two huge grips looks like they drew the bridge out from the land and adore it as if it were a gift from nature.
The mix of city, beach, and mountains is drawing people to the area. China Beach is for fresh seafood and good waves. Marble Mountains are for exploring temples and caves. Now the city itself offers a burgeoning culinary scene. The client for the project was the Sun Group.
A curved golden bridge designed by TA Landscape Architecture based in Ho Chi Minh City. The company’s founder, Vu Viet Anh, was the principal designer. Initially, Sun Group was hesitant about the design, and have concerned about this bridge. However, it took months to persuade for the final design.
The Ba Na Hills is a popular getaway for the French during the colonial occupation of Vietnam. The latest attraction has enticed more than 2.7 million visitors in 2017 according to the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism. This project gives the motivation that humans efforts can do anything. In the end, you will feel a smooth walk on clouds as it’s so unique.
