    In this photograph taken on July 31, 2018, visitors walk along the 150-meter long Cau Vang "Golden Bridge" in the Ba Na Hills near Danang.
    Nestled in the forested hills of central Vietnam two giant concrete hands emerge from the trees, holding up a glimmering golden bridge crowded with gleeful visitors taking selfies at the country's latest eccentric tourist draw.

    Since its opening in June, Vietnam's Golden Bridge Cau Vang has been attracting crowds of tourists willing to see the unique piece of architecture lifted up by a pair of giant hands.

    The 150-metre long bridge is located in the Ba Na Hills, in central Vietnam at over 1,000 meters (3,280 feet) above sea level. It was designed by TA Landscape Architecture in Ho Chi Minh City with an idea to resemble “giant hands of Gods, pulling a strip of gold out of the land,” said Vu Viet Anh, Design Principal at TA Landscape Architecture. Sputnik offers you a virtual stroll over this magnificent bridge.
