High up in the lush hills of Da Nang, Vietnam, two humongous, wizened concrete hands emerge, elevating a glistening gold bridge into the clouds. It’s almost like an ancient offering to the heavens, especially when the structure brims with throngs of human sacrifices visitors, eager to take advantage of the extraordinary photo op.
The popular coastal city in the heart of the country already draws tourists with its quaint history as a French colonial port, and now the bold new Cau Vang (it means “golden bridge” in Vietnamese) is delivering more people into the hands of the gods at its Ba Na Hills location.
Lifted up about 1,400m above sea level and spanning 150m in length, the structure winds through the forested mountainous area. In a nod to its past, when it was developed in 1919 by French colonists as a hill station, the place also houses attractions like an alpine roller coaster, cable cars, a wax museum of international celebrities, and a replica of a French medieval village – castle and all.
Stunning shots of the shimmering architectural wonder have recently hit viral gold on social media, surprising even the architect Vu Viet Anh, founder of TA Landscape Architecture.
