There is a bridge in Central Vietnam, which you will think only in the legendary film as the lord of the ring... A mountain bridge supported by giant hands. That is Golden Bridge. Recently, Golden Bridge (Cau Vang) is a hot key word on google and the heat has not cooled down yet. If you have a chance to travel to Vietnam, take a look at it.
It took nearly one year to finish the construction of this bridge. The 150-metre (500 feet) long footbridge, perched 1400m above sea level, costs almost 2-billion USD investment to attract more tourists. Two giant stone hands, emerging from trees, hold up gleaming walkway to the sky – as the concept of where it is located, Ba Na Hill – the road to heaven.

The two giant hands are considered as God’s hand supporting Vietnamese bridge in particular, or we can say God supports Vietnamese tourism in general. On the other side, the bridge could be like a long silk flap carefully held up through forest hills by two hands of a woman. From here, visitors can get a glimpse of Da Nang city with beautiful coastlines or simply enjoy themselves among white clouds, blue sky and green forests.
Opened up in June 2018, the Golden Bridge has drew more and more attention, not only from Locals but also from Internationals. The Bridge places in Thien Thai garden, a part of Ba Na Hill – a hill station and resort located in Truong Son Mountains, west of the city of Da Nang, in central Vietnam.
Ba Na is a name having many interesting meanings behind. This region was discovered in 1919 by French colonists. There was a rumor that once French came up to this area and found out there were a lot of Bananas (Banane in French), so they called it Banana Hill but Vietnamese pronounced it as Ba Na. According to writer Nguyen Ngoc, Ba Na means “our mountain” in the Katu’s language. The French built Ba Na into a resort to serve French authorities and officials. Ba Na has become a promising tourist spot with rich variety of entertainment choices and is a must-to-visit destination when coming to Da Nang.
Because of the high location, the weather in Ba Na is cool year around, which is ideal for escaping from hustle and bustle or having a relaxing mind away from stress and daily worries. With various flora and fauna existing there, Ba Na is recognized as a nature reserve by Vietnamese government.

From the cabin, you can get the breath-taking view of landscape with floating clouds, spectacular mountains, smoggy forest and magnificent waterfalls.

“Where to get a perfect encounter with local and experience the most rural feelings in Vietnam?” – Whenever this question comes to me, the northern mountains are automatically come to my mind. The Northern Mountains divide into 2 sub-regions, namely Northwest and Northeast. Northwest consists of 6 provinces: Dien Bien, Son La, Lai Chau, HoaBinh, Lao Cai, Yen Bai. Sapa is a prominent name, when people think of rice terraces and minority groups in Vietnam. That is the reason why Sapa now is too touristic and cannot keep the innocence of rural areas. In this article, I would like to introduce Mu Cang Chai – the land of rice terraces as a place where you still find the purity and honesty of local minorities and of landscape itself.
