NDO – The Cau Vang (Golden Bridge) has been honoured among the Top 5 special awards of the year under the Guide Awards 2018.

Among the winners of the awards are also Vietnam Airlines JSC, Azerai Can Tho resort, Paradise Cruises, and the Hanoi-based French restaurant Clover at Ngoc Thuy.

With an impressive design resembling a yellow ribbon on the hands of a god, at a height of 1,400m on Ba Na peak, the Golden Bridge has quickly become the most attractive destination in Da Nang since its official launch in early June 2018.

The bridge's reputation has even surpassed Vietnam's borders, praised by prestigious news agencies, newspapers and social networks as one of the world's most spectacular walking bridges.

As part of the Sun World Ba Na Hills resort run by Sun Group, the birth of the bridge is considered a strong stimulus for Da Nang tourism.

Statistics from the central coastal city’s Tourism Department showed that in the first nine months this year, the total number of visitors to Da Nang was estimated at over 6.5 million arrivals, an increase of 27.7% over the same period last year. Of which, half of them have travelled to Da Nang because of the attraction of the famous bridge.

The Guide Awards is a prestigious award organised by the Vietnam Economic Times and The Guide magazine. Since its launch in 1999, the Guide Awards has become one of the most prestigious travel awards and is sponsored by the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism, the Vietnam Union of Science and Technology Associations, and the Vietnam Economic Science.

Under the theme "Tourism and Digital Transformation", the Guide Awards 2018 honoured 110 brands.
