Breathtaking Bridge In Vietnam Looks Like Something From Lord Of The Rings


A bridge outside Da Nang in Vietnam is wowing visitors with its beautiful view and elegant design – seemingly being held aloft by two giant stone hands.

Known as the Golden Bridge, it stands 1,400m above sea level above the Ba Na hills, offering majestic panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. The gold-colored footbridge is lined with purple Lobelia Chrysanthemums and extends for almost 150 meters, curving around in a neat design. But it is the sculpted hands holding the pedestrian bridge that give it the true wow factor. The design for the footbridge came from a company called TA Landscape Architecture, and while the hands look like they are carved from stone, they are actually not. “We designed the skeleton of the hands and covered them with steel meshes,” a representative of the company said“Then we finished with fiberglass and added the theming on it. The entire construction of the bridge took about a year.”

Vietnam tourism has experienced a boom as more and more people discover the beautiful places to visit in this remarkable country; the structure is part of a $2 billion investment to bring even more than the 1.5 million visitors the area receives annually.
