Designed to make visitors feel like they’re sauntering across a golden thread held up by the hands of gods, Vietnam’s newly opened Golden Bridge is the country’s latest tourist draw.

Located in the lush, forested Ba Nang Hills near Danang, the 150-meter bridge has attracted hordes of visitors since opening in June.

The bridge is situated in a former hill station developed by French colonists in 1919. Today, it is a major attraction for both locals and travelers, boasting a replica French medieval village, manicured gardens, a cable car system, as well as a wax museum housing the figurines of celebrities like Lady Gaga and Michael Jordan.

Created by TA Landscape Architecture, the pedestrian walkway sits at over 1,000 meters above sea level and extends over the edge of a cliff face. As such, visitors can enjoy unobstructed views of the landscape.

Stretching out from the cliffs, two huge stone carved human hands reach out to support the Golden Bridge, but at the same time look like they’re reclaiming it for nature.

Viet Anh, the designer of the Golden Bridge, has another project in the works — a silver-hued bridge that will suggest a god’s strand of hair and connect to his existing creation in the Ba Na Hills.
