GOLDEN BRIDGE VIETNAM LOCATION

Golden Bridge Vietnam in Ba Na Hills, also known as Cau Vang, is located 30km west of Da Nang City in Vietnam.

The Golden Bridge Vietnam (Cau Vang) is the latest attraction at Sun World Ba Na Hills fantasy amusement park and the only access to the Golden Bridge Da Nang (Cau Vang Da Nang) is by riding the Ba Na Hills cable car from the base of the mountain to the top station.

Awesome Fact: The Ba Na Hills cable car holds the Guinness World Record for the world’s longest cable car system which takes you directly to the Golden Bridge Vietnam.

HOW TO GET TO GOLDEN BRIDGE VIETNAM

There are a number of ways of reaching Sunworld Golden Bridge Vietnam which I have listed below:

Private Taxi:

A private taxi from Da Nang to Golden Bridge Vietnam will set you back around 800,000 VND for a return trip and the drive takes approximately one hour each way.

Grab Taxi: 

Grab taxies are a very popular means of transport in Vietnam and much cheaper than the cost of a normal taxi. A Grab taxi from Da Nang to Ba Na Hills costs around 500,000 VND return. Download the Grab app from the App Store and you’re good to go.

Rental Scooter:

If you are confident in riding a motorbike or scooter then this is your best and cheapest option for reaching the Golden Bridge Vietnam. There are a number of scooter rental shops dotted around Da Nang City and the general rental price is around 150,000 VND per day.

It’s very easy to self-navigate your way to Ba Na Hills with the aid of Google Maps on your smartphone and make sure to search for Ba Na Cable Car Service Parking Lot’ to find your way to the front entrance.

Note: If you search for Ba Na Hills’ on Google Maps this will lead you to the top of the mountain and these directions are incorrect.

GOLDEN BRIDGE DA NANG ENTRANCE FEE

The entrance fee to Sun World Ba Na Hills and the Golden Bridge Vietnam is 700,000 VND ($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 parking lot 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 on the map, including the Golden Bridge Vietnam.

Alternatively, you can purchase your Golden Bridge Da Nang ticket online in advance and skip the queue.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT CAU VANG (GOLDEN BRIDGE VIETNAM)

The gondola ride takes around twenty minutes from the bottom station to top of Ba Na Hills, boasting spectacular views of Da Nang’s coastline and surrounding mountains as you ascend on the world’s longest cable car.

When you reach the top, you’ll be greeted with the site of the giant, white-washed, colossal hands holding up the famed Golden Bridge Vietnam.

The Golden Bridge Da Nang 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 1,400 meters above sea level and stretches 150 meters through the treetops on Ba Na Hills.

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

Tip: If you arrive at the Golden Bridge Vietnam as soon as it opens at 7:30 am you might get lucky to take some photos without the crowds. Also, hang around till sunset and you might have the same luck!  😉

God’s hands holding up the Golden Bridge Vietnam 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!

    • Jonny Melon
      September 17, 2018 / 12:29 am

      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?
