Winding its way around a 150-meter course lined with flowers, a golden bridge shimmers against the Ba Na Hills, supported by a pair of giant hands”.
The Golden Bridge was officially inaugurated in early June 2018 as a new tourist product of SunWorld Ba Na Hills complex. Nested on the Paradise Garden, the 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. What strikes the hearts of all overwhelmed visitors here is the dabbled and mossy giant hands supporting the bridge. According to TA Landscape Architecture – direct design unit of the Golden Bridge – the hands are attributed to the hands of the Mountain God who draws from inside a rocky mountain a golden sash to carry mortal villagers to the Paradise Garden.
At the height of 1,414m from the sea level, in the midst of the heavenly scenery of the Lord Mountain, the Golden Bridge pulls visitors into a blurry world of fairy dreams and fantasy. This audacious design of the Golden Bridge is reputed among professional architects as comparable to suspended Langkawi Sky Bridge (Malaysia), one of the most unique and recognizable bridges of the world.
Since its official inauguration, the Golden Bridge has triggered a true tourist fever. Apart from visitors who restlessly took selfies and did check-ins on this unique bridge, various couples chose the bridge as their wedding photo shooting site for once in a lifetime. Dômestic artists also rushed to tap in the breathtaking photogenic moments of the Golden Bridge!
