Forget San Francisco, there is a new golden bridge that has taken the world by storm. Vietnam’s newly opened Golden Bridge in Cau Vang is simply a sight to behold!
Golden Bridge located 1,400 metres above sea level on the Ba Na Hills, a mountainside resort, established by French colonists in 1919. Cau Vang follows in a line of unusual footbridges, seen everywhere from Iowa to India.
The bridge, which opened in June, is reportedly part of a US$2 billion project by TA Landscape Architecture to increase tourism in Vietnam. Spanning 150 metres, the bridge is divided into eight spans, each of which is lined by Lobelia Chrysanthemum flowers. Wow!
Such bridges are noteworthy as architectural statements in themselves, rather than accessories for an already popular location. Understandably, this architectural marvel has been making the rounds on social media for its remarkable design.
A pair of giant hands lift the ribbon-like Golden Bridge up in the air above Vietnam’s Trường Sơn Mountains. Set more than 1,400m above sea level in the resort of Ba Na Hills, the new structure incorporates eight spans and extends 150m-long.
