A giant pair of hands lifts this golden bridge into the sky in Thien Thai garden, in the city of Da Nang in Vietnam, the new floating bridge has attracted many visitors since its opening in early June.
Thien thai garden is situated in Ba Na Hills, known as the tourist area and the area has been opened to tourists since early June with this spectacular bridge.
Named Da Nang Golden Bridge, the bridge is lifted by two giant stone hands, providing an infinite view to the mountainous landscape. Situated in the midst of the forest, the bridge is colored with golden to make itself more visible, and the bridge is supported by two grey hands pretending like the two hands are rising from the earth.
The Golden Bridge is suspended 1,400 m above sea level, including 8 spans with a length of nearly 150-metre long. Lobelia Chrysanthemum is also planted along the pathway on the bridge, creating a focal point of color, attracting the eyes of visitors.
The bridge creates an effect like all visitors are walking on the clouds. It provides a unique experience and it has already become a major destination for many tourists from around the world.
Reportedly, the bridge is part of a $2 billion project to accommodate tourists in the area. Ba Na Hills is a hill station and resort, established by French colonists in 1919.
It is close to the city of Da Nang, it once held 200 villas but today, only a few ruins remained in the area. Ba Na Hills now houses a Fantasy Park and a ‘French village’, with cobbled streets.
