The Golden Bridge Vietnam (also known as Cau Vang) in Ba Na Hills has become an internet legend since it was first opened to the public in June 2018.
Thanks to Instagram, this incredible bridge has made it to the top of everyone’s Vietnam Bucket List and it’s easy to see why!
I have put together this complete guide to Cau Vang including how to get there, how much it costs, and the best time to visit the Golden Bridge Da Nang.

WHERE IS THE GOLDEN BRIDGE IN VIETNAM?
Golden Bridge Vietnam in Ba Na Hills, is located 30km west of Da Nang City in Vietnam.
Click here to see the location on Google maps.
It’s 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 bridge.

HOW TO GET TO BA NA HILLS
There are a number of ways of reaching Sunworld Golden Bridge Vietnam which I have listed below:
A private taxi from Da Nang to Ba Na Hills will set you back around 800,000 VND for a return trip and the drive takes approximately one hour each way.
Grab taxis 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.
The most convenient option for reaching Ba Na Hills is to rent a car in Da Nang and from here it’s very easy to self-navigate your way to Ba Na Hills with the aid of Google Maps on your smartphone.
Make sure to search for ‘Ba Na Cable Car Service Parking Lot’ to find your way to the main 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 VIETNAM OPENING HOURS
Sun World Amusement Park and the Golden Bridge Da Nang are open 7 days a week from 7:30 am – 9:30 pm.
GOLDEN BRIDGE DA NANG ENTRANCE FEE
The entrance fee to Sun World Ba Na Hills and the Golden Bridge is 700,000 VND ($30) which includes the cable car ride and in my opinion, it’s 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.
Alternatively, you can purchase your ticket online in advance and skip the queue.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT CAU VANG
The gondola ride takes around twenty minutes from the bottom station to the 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 sight of the giant, white-washed, colossal hands holding up the famed Golden Bridge Da Nang.
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 1,400 meters above sea level and stretches 150 meters through the treetops on Ba Na Hills.
Due to its popularity, the bridge is flooded with visitors, day in and day out, however, you will still get to enjoy uninterrupted panoramic views of the landscapes below.
Travel Tip: If you arrive as soon as the park 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 bridge were purposely constructed to look weathered as if they had been there for centuries, giving it an antique look.
SUN WORLD BA NA HILLS FANTASY PARK
Sun World really is a fantasy land that recreates a French-style village with castles galore and cobblestone streets, sitting high above the clouds in Ba Na Hills.
Sun World is rated Vietnam’s most popular entertainment area and tourist attraction which brings in over 1.5 million visitors each year.
Visitors can enjoy attractions such as the French village, flower gardens, wax museum, spiritual pagodas, the golden bridge, Bavarian beer garden, a rollercoaster, and a fantasy park.

Hello Johny, Thank you for all this info. Do you know if Tripods are allowed in the park? Thank you in advance. – Mindy
Hi Mindy, glad you found this blog useful! Yes I am sure having a tripod would be no issues at all 🙂
Great article and pictures! Did you fly into Da Nang? I heard the airport will confiscate drones…I’ll fly domestic flight form HCMC. Thank you!
Thanks for reading. I arrived by bus to Da Nang so I am not sure about drones being confiscated at the airport, sorry. Good Luck and enjoy 🙂
Hi, great article.. Grabbed me, now I want to go.. .just wondering if it would be best to stay a night or two actually at the top, so as to avoid crowds in the evening..
Thanks for reading! Yes, if you wanted to stay one night at the top it is possible and indeed it will be less crowded!
Hi! If i pay 70000 dong for the entrance, do I have to pay extra for the skycab to see the bridge?
Hi Monika, 70000 dong will give you access to everything at Sun World! Enjoy
This is amazing! I’ll try to visit this asap! Thanks for the info you’ve provided! 🙂
You’re welcome. Enjoy!
Hi, am I right in saying that the 700000 dong entrance fee gets you in the fantasy park and on the rides and games also aswell as seeing the bridge also. Many thanks
Hello, Yes the entrance fee covers everything inside Sun World Ba Na Hills 🙂
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.
You are most welcome. You have to pay the original entrance fee regardless if you want to see the other stuff or not. Hope this helps 🙂
Great photos, will be going there on this Sunday! Do you know if there is a public transport to Ba Na hills from Da Nang? 🙂
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, very nice shot. Which time do you go to the bridge to shoot when it has no people? can you advise me?
Thanks alot. I was there for sunset but still alot of people there every hour of the day, you just have to time it right! Good Luck
Hi what is the cheapest mode of transport going to Ba na Hills from the airport? I am travelling solo. Thanks.
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 🙂
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 😉
Nice! How do u get to this place from ho chi minh?
You can fly direct from Saigon to Da Nang and it is a one hour drive from there to Ba Na Hills.
Wow…a fully charged Phone and Camera should be brought along! so many instagrammable spots!
