Located just outside the city of Da Nang in central Vietnam, visitors from far and wide have been flocking to the bridge since it was opened to the public in June

Not for the faint-hearted, the bridge stands at 1,400 metres above sea level and extends to a 150-metre curved walkway. 

The pièce de résistance has got to be the two giant stone hands emerging from the forested hills, seeming like they're lifting up the majestic structure

The entire construction, which took about a year to complete, was designed by TA Landscape Architecture. 

Though the hands look like they are carved from stone, they are actually made of steel meshes and fibreglass. 

A representative from the company told Bored Panda, "We designed the skeleton of the hands and covered them with steel meshes. Then we finished with fibreglass and added the theming on it."

The golden walkway, which is also lined with purple Lobelia Chrysanthemums, definitely makes for gorgeous photo ops and selfies!

From a certain point on the bridge, you can also catch a glimpse of the "secret" French village tucked within the mountains

First developed by French colonists in the early 20th century, the mountain resort is now a major tourist attraction in Da Nang featuring a cable car system, manicured gardens, a wax museum, and the main attraction - a replica of a French medieval village complete with a castle and cathedral as well as quaint shophouses. 

Well, we know where we're going for our next vacation! ;)
