Golden Bridge In Vietnam Looks Like It Came Straight Out Of A Fantasy Book

Breathtaking sceneries with magnificent statues, temples, and other structures are a staple in fantasy worlds. You have probably seen (or read) about the 400-meter Titan of Braavos, a statue that guards the entrance to the Free city of Braavos, from G.R.R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones, and the Argonath or the Gate of Kings, two massive statues in the likeness of Anarion and Isuldur, from J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings. This July, Vietnam turned fantasy into reality as they opened the magnificent ‘Cau Vang’ or Golden Bridge at Bà Nà Hills Resort.

The gold-colored bridge stands at about 4,600 feet (1400m) above sea level and spans around 500 feet (150m), giving pedestrians and tourists a majestic, unobstructed view of the countryside. What makes this architectural feat look like it was born from the pages of a fantasy book is the giant pair of hands, seemingly weathered by age and time, holding the ribbon-like bridge.

You can enjoy a romantic stroll with your bae along the walkway or take awesome selfies with rolling hills and the bluest of skies as your backdrop. Rows of purple lobelia chrysanthemums line the walkway, giving the bridge a pop of color and a touch of nature.

The Golden Bridge was created under a $2 billion project in order to invite more visitors to the area, which has been successful as tourists flock to see this ethereal structure. You can also enjoy the gardens, the faux French castle in the medieval village, & a ride on the cable car!
