Breathtaking Bridge In Vietnam Has Just Been Opened And It Looks Like Something From Lord Of The Rings

Bored Panda – by Ligitas Nefas

A bridge outside Da Nang in Vietnam is wowing visitors with its elegant design – seemingly being held aloft by two giant stone hands.

Known as the Golden Bridge, it stands 1,400m above sea level above the Ba Na hills, offering majestic views of the surrounding countryside. The gold-colored walkway is lined with purple Lobelia Chrysanthemums and extends for almost 150 metres, curving around in an elegant design. But it is the sculpted hands that give it the true wow factor.

The design for the bridge came from a company called TA Landscape Architecture, and while the hands look like they are carved from stone, they are actually not. “We designed the skeleton of the hands and covered them with steel meshes,” a representative of the company told Bored Panda. “Then we finished with fiberglass and added the theming on it. The entire construction of the bridge took about a year.”

Vietnam has experienced a tourism boom as more and more people discover the beauty of this remarkable country, the structure is part of a $2 billion investment to bring even more than the 1.5 million visitors the area receives annually.

    Awesome

  2. Ed Teach says:

    Cool but weird.

  3. Sunfire says:

    An impressive structure to be sure, but I can’t help but wonder how long it will take for the flower beds to be full of cigarette butts and other trash, and graffiti to appear on the hands.

    I’m sure the US tax payers helped fund this in some way

  6. NC says:

    It doesn’t matter. Either the locals will trash it or the US will bomb it. That’s usually how it goes. See it while you can!

  7. NC says:

    I’m still looking for the girls who are standing around saying, “Me so horny! Me love you long time”, along with the moped mafia. Lol

    It occurred to me, that with a slight variation, we might have such a sculpture here, in our very own country, if, perhaps, #1 would offer the diagram of the hand he frequently posts here, that it may be handed to the best of architects to produce such a sculpture of size and magnitude.

    Deciding on the location will not be easy. One might suggest placement directly in front of say, The Federal Reserve!! Or the prominent and imposing building of our Internal Revenue Service!! Of course smaller models can be strategically placed at all court houses and detention facilities. It will be up to We-The-People to submit location suggestions. What an exciting project!!
