Vietnam’s impressive bridges attract tourists

The Hanoitimes - With unique designs, Rong May glass bridge, Golden bridge and Dragon bridge are impressive destinations for tourists in Vietnam.

Vietnam has a number of impressive bridges that attract many local and foreign tourists to come.

Golden Brigde (Cau Vang) in Danang ranked among the World’s 100 Greatest Place of 2018 by the Time magazine. The bridge is nested at the height of 1,400m above sea level, with a total length of 148.6m. The two massive stony hands emerging from the mountains of central Vietnam may look mossy and cracked like ancient ruins. Spanning nearly 150m long in the Paradise Garden at Ba Na Hills, this bridge is regarded as a special transit stop to deliver visitors from the mountain foot or the French Village to La Jardin D’Amour Gardens.
