The Golden Bridge in Da Nang, Vietnam, gets a new pair of stone hands holding it with the aim to attract more tourists to the area.

Ha Long Bay, My Khe Beach and the Cham Islands in Vietnam now have a giant competitor in their hands — literally — as a new tourist destination recently opened in the province of Da Nang.

Rising 1,400 meters above sea level is the beautiful Golden Bridge that snakes around the mountain. The bridge — a winding, golden pathway — is adorned with blooming flowers of striking colors. It’s a magnificent sight in the hills of Ba Na.

But that’s not the highlight of this new tourist attraction, which opened only last month as part of Thien Thai Garden. “Holding” the Golden Bridge is a pair of giant stone hands. The hands, although new, were given a weathered and surreal touch thanks to landscape group TA Landscape Architecture, who also gave an almost mystical appeal to the whole place because of the beautifully landscaped bridge. Moss, vines and other greens cover the hands to make the place seem like a setting from a historical period drama film.

This beautiful place is said to be included in the $2 billion project of the government. The project aims to attract more tourists to the area, which was once a scene depicting a quaint French town with over 200 villas.

In a bird’s-eye view, the hands look like they are holding a strand of golden hair (the Golden Bridge), which snakes around the hills in eight spans, all of which are lined with flowers like chrysanthemums. The view from the bridge is spectacular and is expected to attract more tourists in the coming months.
