Nested on the Paradise Garden, the Golden Bridge acts as a special and convenient transit to take visitors from the mountain foot or French village to Le Jardin D’Amour gardens. The bridge spans 12.8m wide and 150m long and comprises 8 arches, the longest of which is 21.2m. It was officially inaugurated in early June 2018 as a new tourist product of SunWorld Ba Na Hills complex. What strikes the hearts of all overwhelmed visitors here is the dabbled and mossy giant hands supporting the bridge.
Some other bridges mentioned by Insider include Helix Bridge (Singapore), Pont Alexandre III Bridge, Paris (France), Ponte Vecchio Bridge, Florence (Italy), Tower Bridge, London (England), Trift Bridge (Switzerland), Glacier Skywalk Glass Bridge, Alberta (Canada), Golden Gate Bridge, California (US).
The Golden Bridge has been praised by many foreign news sites, travel magazines such as Time, CNN, and Guardian in the world.
Earlier this month, in Wanderlust’s list of favorite things in Vietnam, the international magazine recommended tourists should take photos and post with #Golden Bridge hashtag on their social media.
CNN listed the Vietnamese bridge among the 124 best travel photo theme of 2018.
In 2018, The Time magazine listed it in its list of top 100 World’s Greatest Places for 2018. AFP also voted Golden bridge as one of Top 106 photos of 2018. Recently, Reuters has called the bridge among the top odd and unusual photo destinations of 2018.
