THE GOLDEN BRIDGE IN BA NA HILLS – VIETNAM

THE GOLDEN BRIDGE IN BA NA HILLS – VIETNAM

The Golden Bridge Ba Na Hills has recently gone viral across the world since it was first opened to the public in June 2018. Thanks to Instagram, this bridge has made it to the top of everyone’s bucket list and it is easy to see why!

Curious to know what Camera Gear & Travel Essentials I carry while backpacking around the world? I have put together THIS LIST of items to consider packing on your next adventure!

WHERE IS THE (CAU VANG) GOLDEN BRIDGE BA NA HILLS & HOW TO GET THERE

The Golden Bridge Ba Na Hills, also known as Cau Vang, is located 30km west of Da Nang City and it takes around one hour to drive from Da Nang to the foot of Ba Na Hills.

The Golden Bridge (Cau Vang) is the latest attraction at the Sun World Ba Na Hills fantasy amusement park. The only access to the top of Ba Na Hills is by a cable car, which happens to be the world’s longest single cable car system.

Entrance fee to Sun World Ba Na Hills is 700,000 dong ($30) which includes the cable car ride and in my opinion, it is worth every cent. You can find the ticket office right next to the carpark and once paid you will receive a mud map of Sun World Ba Na Hills fantasy amusement park and each point of interest is clearly marked.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT (CAU VANG) GOLDEN BRIDGE BA NA HILLS

The cable car ride takes 20 minutes from bottom to top of Ba Na Hills offering spectacular views of the surrounding coastline and mountains as you ascend into the mountains. When you reach the top of the gondola ride you’ll be greeted with the site of the giant colossal hands holding up the infamous Golden Bridge.

The bridge was designed to evoke the image of God’s hands pulling a strip of gold out of the land. The shimmering golden walkway sits at 1400 meters above sea level and stretches 150 meters through the treetops on Ba Na Hills.

Due to its popularity, the Golden Bridge Ba Na Hills is flooded with visitors day in and day out, however, you will still get to enjoy uninterrupted panoramic views of the landscapes below.

God’s hands holding up the Golden Bridge on Ba Na Hills were purposely constructed to look weathered as if they had been there for centuries, giving it an antique look.

      You can fly direct from Saigon to Da Nang and it is a one hour drive from there to Ba Na Hills.

    Looks amazing! Will be heading there in a couple of days when we get to Hoi An! Did you have any issues flying the drone at the bridge? I have my mavic air and am hoping to get some shots!

      It is such a cool place! Yeah, I got in trouble for flying the drone and I was even hiding in a bush. If you are stealth enough you might get away with it.

        What trouble do you get? Is it you must pay a fine or file remove?

          Just got told to delete the file from my phone, but I still had the files on the SD card anyway 😉

      I would rent a scooter from a motorbike rental shop in Da Nang for $7 per day and then ride to Ba Na Hills which takes one hour. Hope this helps 🙂

      Awesome, you are going to love it. I don’t believe there is public transport, you’ll have to take a bike or a taxi. Hope this helps 🙂

    Hi thanks for posting this, it’s really helpful. Do you know if I am able to only pay to go up and see the Bridge? I’m not really interested in all the other stuff. Thank you.
