Golden Bridge among world's 100 greatest places

Bookmark and Share

Recently, the renowned Time magazine of the US has announced its list of the world’s 100 greatest places for 2018 and Vietnam’s amazing Golden Bridge on the peak of Ba Na Hill in Da Nang city was named in the list.
Time Magazine says the two massive stony hands emerging from the mountains of central Vietnam may look mossy and cracked like ancient ruins, but don’t be fooled: they’re brand-new wire mesh and fiberglass supports for a striking footbridge that opened in June.
The Cau Vang, or “Golden Bridge,” soars 3,280 ft. above sea level in the Ba Na Hills, where it connects a cable-car station to popular nearby gardens.
The structure itself is made of timber with stainless-steel railings treated to appear gold; TA Landscape Architecture, the Ho Chi Minh City–based firm that led the bridge’s design, has likened it to the “giant hands of Gods” cradling a golden thread.
The 500-ft.-long expanse gives visitors plenty of space to take in the scenic views. It’s all part of an effort to bring more tourists to the country.
Images of the bridge have gone viral and many international media outlets have heaped praise on the bridge./.
