About
This striking bridge is one of the most photographed spots in Da Nang, located within Ba Na Hills. This 500-foot-long golden bridge appears to be cradled by two gigantic hands amidst the clouds. Get there early in the morning to snap a shot on the bridge without the crowds. It connects the hilltop cable car station to the stunning Paradise Gardens, and you can enjoy breathtaking views of the East Sea and the Annamite Mountains as you cross. Check out the bridge on a guided tour of Ba Na Hills from Da Nang or Hoi An—it usually includes the cable car ride, the French Village, and Fantasy Park as well. – Tripadvisor

    Fun time
    The views very lovely. There were many things to do and you need the whole day to go there. But definitely recommended. It gets very crowded, so it’ll be good to get there early. I strongly recommend to buy the tickets directly there, not with any agency, you can pay with card. You can get there by car (I recommend to use grab) and they’ll leave you at the parking lot and from there you can take a bus (it is free) and it takes you directly to the main entrance. (No cars are allowed to go up, only the tours and the buses).

    Don't come just for the bridge
    Opened in 2018 this pedestrian bridge that links the cable car with the garden area has become famous for its original design where two hands support the bridge. It looks amazing in photos and has became a big tourist attraction. I was and still am in mixed minds about the attraction. I wanted to see it but knew it would be crowded and undecided whether it was worth the effort. I think it was worthwhile, not just for itself but for what it is part of. It is a pretty unique bridge and the hand sculptures are impressive. It only took us about 20 minutes to walk it and take photos. In addition the cable car, the gardens, pagodas and temples nearby are very pretty too and you get lovely views over the Ba Na Hills. Then you can explore the French town further up and visit the amusements and rides there. We took a tour with Venus Travel. Our guide's advice was to go see the Golden Bridge early in case of rain or fog and this was so right. By 3pm the fog had come in and it would have been obscured. I think we were also very lucky on our day. There was a lunar celebration in Vietnam and the whole park was less crowded than usual.

    A mystical bridge set in the clouds, it’s a must see in Vietnam.
    BaNa Hills is such a mystical place and the bridge was my favourite. It’s definitely worth booking a night at the Mercure at the top so you can skip the line and go straight up in the hotel cable car. You also get early morning access to the bridge before the crowds arrive by staying at the hotel.

    The Golden Bridge in Da Nang is very Sexy
    The Golden Bridge in Da Nang, a unique architectural marvel, creates a stunning blend of nature and human ingenuity. Stepping onto the bridge, I am captivated by the breathtaking views of the city and the vast blue sea. The sensation of walking on the sturdy bridge, supported by the giant golden hands of the Bà Nà statue, allows me to feel the connection between history and modernity. The shimmering lights create a mystical atmosphere, especially in the evening when the city glows beneath the warm golden hues. I cannot forget the feeling of the cool sea breeze gently caressing my face while standing in the middle of the bridge. This is not just an artistic masterpiece but also an incredible experience that brings me closer to the natural beauty and culture of Da Nang.

    Worth to visit! Reserve a full day!
    We went to see the Golden Bridge and realized that this is a big amusement park in fact. There is no point to go by tour - just take a taxi, buy tickets and you are free to explore the area by your own tempo. Its worth to take jackets and/or long sleeve shirt as its up to hill and we happend to be in the clouds - 10 degrees cooler than in Hoi An. Definitely very much worth to visit!
    Dear our valued clients, Appreciate your feedback! The Golden Bridge is indeed within an amusement park, but our tours provide curated experiences with expert guides. They share fascinating insights, making your visit more enriching. We acknowledge the desire for flexibility and will explore ways to incorporate that. Bringing a jacket is a great tip for the hill! We're thrilled you found it worth a visit. Planning another trip? Let us make it even more memorable.

    One of the surprise highlights of da nang
    I wasn’t really expecting much after my wife booked tour of the hills but it ended out being a really fun day. The bridge was a bit covered with fog but we still managed to nab some great pics. Tips: patience is key. Time your photos for when u see a gap in visitors or groups The escalator down offers a quick picture perfect photo of bridge. One of the surprisingly best spots to see bridge is near the public toilets
    It is great to hear this feeling after tour completion. We are looking forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Thank you so much!

    Meh.
    Absolutely no view at all. Was completely foggy and couldn't see anything. Kind of a bummer to drive all this way and take the long tram up to see nothing. Fun to climb around the top and grab a glass of wine.

    Exploring the Golden Bridge and Beyond
    Great day trip. There is a lot more to the Golden Bridge. Once you purchase your ticket to travel up the cable car, you can continue to Ba Na Hills there is so much to see and do up there. We went on a cloudy day and it was still amazing. Very popular and touristy you need to go early. We did not book a tour, we arranged a Grab car to drop us off and pick us up at a certain time. On arrival, once you have your ticket there are 2 lines. A standard then a WOW line. These are for annual type passes. The line moves fast. The cable cars are stable and pretty comfortable, and the view up is incredible seeing back to Da Nang city and the coastline. The weather changes up and there and for us it was cold in the clouds and time even damp. There is an Ancient House to see at that stop also along with other cool sculptures. Was well worth seeing. Nice coffee stop there also.
    Thank you so much for your review and look forward to having your visit again!

    Beautiful! Worth to visit
    My visit to the Golden Bridge was an absolutely remarkable experience, particularly due to the timing of my visit. Opting to explore the bridge in the morning proved to be a wise decision; not only was it less crowded, allowing for a more serene and intimate experience, but I also had the privilege of witnessing the breathtaking sunrise from the bridge. The early hours truly enhance the beauty and tranquility of the place. For those staying at the Mercure hotel, like myself, there are three exclusive trips offered in the morning - at 6:00 AM, 6:30 AM, and 7:00 AM. This convenient scheduling ensures that guests can experience the bridge at its best, without having to worry about large crowds or the day's heat. The architecture of the Golden Bridge is something that must be admired in person. Its wonderful design is not only a feast for the eyes but also a testament to human ingenuity. Coupled with the beautiful views and the fresh air, it creates an ambiance that is both uplifting and inspiring. Given my experience, I would highly recommend a visit to the Golden Bridge, especially in the early morning. Whether it's the less crowded paths, the chance to see the sunrise, or simply to enjoy the fresh air and stunning views, it's an experience that is sure to leave a lasting impression.

    Breathtaking views
    This was a spontaneous change of plan, we dropped off luggage at our hotel in Hoi An and took a detour to Ba Na Hills to go up the bridge for our engagement photos. It was raining the day before and was still cloudy but we were lucky the sky cleared up by the time we got to the bridge. It was a busy day, lots of other tourists and some were very inconsiderate (take this as a warning). It took a lot of waiting patiently to get a clear shot or at least some shots worthy of DIY engagement photos. The view was breathtaking. We were able to walk around to take more photos and the scenery of the entire Ba Na Hills were also beautiful, definitely worth a visit. We were told it would be less crowded in the morning or later in the day toward sunset, we didn’t stay for the sunset because we wanted to grab dinner and head back to Hoi A before dark, maybe we should have stuck around, but we definitely got what we came here for!

I just got back from traveling near here and I didn't go and I'm glad I didn't. It wasn't until I got to Vietnam that I discovered it's an amusement park and not even a real Bridge! More than that it's completely crowded and ridiculously expensive. Don't do the basketballs either. it's completely staged to an even though it was on a real River It felt like an amusement park as well. They play pop music and have a fisherman who is paid to throw a net in the air on to the water so that you can take a picture of the net in midair. Of course tips are encouraged. If you're a cultural traveler I would skip going to Hoi An... period.

I hired a private driver thru a local travel agency in Hoi An (for 950,000 vmd) to drive me there and wait for me and my husband while we took the gondola up to the bridge.

We arrived around 11am and it wasn't too busy (coronavirus mat have affected this also) but it was filling up quite a bit by 1pm.

I hadn't realized there was so much other stuff to see there - thought the bridge was separate from the theme park but it's actually smack in the middle on the gondola up so I really wish I would have given myself more time there. Had told driver we'd be at meeting point in two hours which isn't a lot of time since the ride up is 17 minutes.

It was a foggy day but I still found the bridge really cool. Had a slight freakout on the gondola ride up once we entered fog. Found it slightly hard to breathe but got thru it lol.

With tourists from outside of Vietnam not visiting because of the Covid virus, the park is much less crowded in the early morning. We arrived at 8:45 and shared the photo opportunities on the bridge with only a few others. But the tour buses arrived after 9:15, making the rest of our visit to the Buddhas and French village more crowded.

Improved signage would help in getting to the French village. We wanderered around for more than 45 minutes looking for the cable car up.

A shout out to Truong who helped us with transportation to the Tien Toi gate after we took the cable car back down.

Please be aware that The Golden Bridge is just a tourist attraction at Vietnams version of Disney Land.
Probably my own fault for not doing proper research, but for some reason I thought this was an old structure made many many years ago. It’s not, it’s just a new structure (fairly impressive) up up in the mountains at a theme park that is still being built.
You get a cable car up 850,000VND (for the cable car and all attractions) & if the weather is good, you’ll get some great views.
If theme parks are your thing, then great, but if you’re expecting culture, then think again.

Only really reviewing this to hopefully stop others making the same mistake we did.

Loved Vietnam though!!!

Honestly, Da Nang and the surrounding area is littered with amazing places EXCEPT this. The Golden Bridge had been the poster picture for Vietnam Tourism poster for years but this so called attractions is just a worse place. It is located 20km from Da Nang and I thought I can visit the hand only. I was terribly wrong. Visitors had to pay 900,000 VND to board the cable car to the top before we can enter the viewing area. There are nothing significant, nothing historical and nothing of interest about the hand other than the walkway. Since we pay 900K which includes the whole theme park, we queue to play everything. Honestly, skip this. Not that interesting.

Golden Bridge in Da Nang really quite an extraordinary sight.  Although ideally you would see it on a sunny day to get it's full magnificence, even on a rainy misty day it was a memorable experience.

This 'hand bridge' has become another in the long list of Da Nang things to do, and rightly so.  Getting a cable car is usually a fun activity to do in itself but here it's just the start.

The huge stone hands are really something.  A great photo opportunity and very popular with people taking pics so you may have to wait before getting a clear view.

There's also a German style beer town, a beautiful garden with colourful flowers and so much more.  A really fun filled day.
