GOLDEN BRIDGE VIETNAM LOCATION
Golden Bridge Vietnam in Ba Na Hills, is located 30km west of Da Nang City in Vietnam.
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 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.
If you are confident in riding a motorbike or scooter then this is your best and cheapest option for reaching Ba Na Hills. 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.

Gondola ride to the Hand Bridge Vietnam
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.
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.
