CAU VANG GOLDEN BRIDGE BA NA HILLS . Vietnam’s Daring Golden Bridge Takes a “Hands-On” Approach to Tourism. Giant hands lift up Vietnam’s Golden Bridge. Anyone been up to see the new Golden Bridge in Ba Na Hills?
In the mountains above Da Nang, Vietnam sits a unique piece of bridge design. Winding its way around a 150-meter course lined with flowers, a golden bridge shimmers against the Ba Na Hills, supported by a pair of giant hands.
The Golden Bridge opened to visitors in early June, the shimmering structure emerges from the trees of Thien Thai Garden. The bridge sits 1,400 meters above sea level, an altitude which creates the illusion of a silk strip hiding in the clouds above Da Nang.Its green hands have been aged, as if they’ve been there for centuries.
The bridge’s 150-meter length is divided into eight spans. Along each perimeter is a line of Lobelia Chrysanthemum flowers, adding a further layer of color to the gold balustrades. The giant pair of hands has been finished with a weathered effect, creating the illusion of age and antiquity.
While undoubtedly distinctive, the Golden Bridge is not alone in the architectural typology of oversized objects. Further examples including giant ducks, dogs, and dinosaurs can be found in our roundup of weird and wonderful architectural novelties.
