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.

Designed to make visitors feel like they’re taking a stroll on a shimmering thread stretching across the hands of gods, the “Golden Bridge” has attracted hordes of guests since it opened in the Ba Na Hills near Da Nang in June, eager to see a novel piece of architecture famed for its unusual design.

The pedestrian walkway, designed by TA Landscape Architecture in Ho Chi Minh City, sits at over 1,000 metres (3,280 feet) above sea level and extends over the treetops from the edge of a leafy cliff face, offering tourists uninterrupted views of the majestic landscape beneath.

“We’re proud that our product has been shared by people all over the world,” principal designer and founder of TA Landscape Architecture, Vu Viet Anh, said.

Images of the bridge have gone viral on social media, much to the surprise of the architect who had no idea it would attract so much attention.

“The bridge is beautiful with an amazing architectural style, from here we can see Da Nang City, it’s so nice,” Nguyen Trung Phuc said.

Another visitor, Nguyen Hien Trang, said: “I have travelled quite a lot but I’ve never seen any bridges as beautiful as this one.”

The Ba Na Hills, a popular getaway for the French during the colonial occupation of Vietnam, received over 2.7 million visitors last year, according to the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism.

But it is the Golden Bridge and its supports - two huge stone-coloured human hands styled in such a way that it looks as if the jungle is struggling to reclaim them - which have garnered the most attention from visitors.

"The two, smooth, giant hands look real," said Truong Hoang Linh Thuy, another tourist. "It makes me feel like humans can do anything".
