The list was based on a survey conducted by the Daily Mail among millennials, born from 1982 to 2000, and “created for the smartphone generation who have never had to wait for holiday photographs to be developed."

The old wonders gained their status the hard way, surviving hundreds or even thousands of years, as sites of cultural, religious or artistic value, while the new wonders are designed to make an instant impact, according to the Daily Mail.

Topping the list announced by the Daily Mail, the Golden Bridge is an architectural work built by Sun Group at Sun World Ba Na Hills Da Nang and opened in 2018. It is designed as though a giant's hands are supporting the 150m path for pedestrians, which overlooks the coastal city, wrote the newspaper.

The Daily Mail quoted Vu Viet Anh, the principal architect of the bridge, as saying that he wanted "to invoke the sensation of walking along a thread stretching through the hands of God."

The newspaper also noted that in its short time since its opening, more than 20,000 posts have appeared on Instagram with the hashtag #goldenbridgevietnam.

The Golden Bridge has regularly been featured in a series of prestigious international outlets such as the Guardian, CNN and the New York Times due to its surreal beauty.

The Golden Bridge was ranked among the top 100 World’s Greatest Places in 2018 by Time magazine.

 

A year later, the Golden Bridge received the 'Special Certificate for Excellent Works' at the Property Guru Vietnam Property Awards 2019, held in HCM City.

The breathtaking bridge was honoured as the 'World's Top Iconic Tourist Bridge' at the World Travel Awards 2020, dubbed the Oscars of world tourism.

Along with other impressive new wonders in the list like the Bosco Verticale (or 'Vertical Forest') in Milan, Gardens by the Bay in Singapore, The Dubai Frame tower, the 'Jungle Swings' on the island of Bali in Indonesia, Jellyfish Roundabout in the Faroe Islands, the soon-to-open Underwater Sculpture Park off Miami Beach, the Golden Bridge is a new tourism icon of the world, particularly attracting the young generation.

With the recognition of the Daily Mail and international youths, the Golden Bridge has once again demonstrated the irresistible attraction of an iconic tourism project of international stature, contributing to making Sun World Ba Na Hills and Da Nang become one of the must-visit destinations of the world.

By leading the new wonders list, the Golden Bridge continues to be a testament to the vision and boldness of Sun Group - the leading corporation in Vietnam in resort tourism and entertainment and also the owner of world-famous resort masterpieces such as InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort, JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay and other Sun World branded tourist complexes located throughout the nation.
