Tourists visiting the mountains of Da Nang, Vietnam, will be uplifted by the Golden Bridge, a structure that takes the shape of two hands supporting a 150-meter-long (492-foot-long) golden span that seems to be hidden in the clouds.

Hands-On Experience

Standing more than 1,400 meters above sea level, the Golden Bridge is part of a $2 billion project meant to attract and accommodate the increasing numbers of tourists visiting Vietnam. According to designboom, the country saw 3.77 million international tourists in 2009 alone, and has maintained similar totals since.

The bridge opened in early June, and is part of the larger Thien Thai Garden experience. As for the bridge itself, it is divided into eight spans, lined with gold balustrades and supported by hands that appear weathered, reminiscent of great age. Lobelia Chrysanthemum flowers line the perimeter, further highlighting the golden aspect of the bridge.

Although the designer has not been explicitly named, renderings of the bridge were created and published by TA Landscape Architecture.

The Thien Thai Garden is an area open to tourists, containing a resort established in 1919 that once housed over 200 villas. Now, the resort has a number of fun-fair attractions and an entire built area modeled after a French village.
