Southeast Asia is well-known for its gorgeous natural and historical attractions.

Just think of Angkor Wat in Cambodia, Halong Bay in Vietnam and Borobudur in Indonesia.

High up on Ba Na hill near Danang City in Vietnam sits a pair of giant hands holding up a pedestrian walkway.

The 150-metre long Cau Vang, or Golden Bridge, rises more than 1400 metres above sea level and offers spectacular views of the surrounding area.

Although brand new – the attraction just opened in June – the hands have been aged to look like they’ve been around for many decades.

According to the principal architect, the project was designed to look like the hands of God pulling out a strip of gold from the land.
