The Hanoitimes - Brightside has announced its list of the most breathtaking places on Earth that will make you want to tour the world right away.
Brightside, a Cyprus-based travel site, has just named Golden Bridge in Da Nang the number one destination among the most breathtaking place on Earth that will make you want to tour the world right away.
“It resembles something that looks like it came out of a surrealist painting — it’s made of 2 giant hands holding it together from one side to the other! It took approximately a year to construct and it is a place that should be on everyone’s bucket list,” Brightside wrote.
Meanwhile, the floating fishing village in Ha Long Bay was in the 17th place on the list.
The locals are mainly fishermen and there are no houses on the land in the surrounding area — just floating houses in the sea. Among those floating houses there are schools and activity centers where people in the community can visit by taking a boat from one side of the village to the other.
