Different photo angles
- From the middle of the giant hand:
It is the best photo angle but you need to be lucky enough when there is no visitor around. However, it seems unlikely these days due to a large number of visitors coming every day. Therefore, you need to plan for that such as sleeping overnight in Ba Na Hills, waking up early, waiting for right moment to capture or interfering with the Photoshop application.
- From the right of the bridge:
As soon as you step down the elevator, look at the right of the bridge, it is one of the favorite photo angles. It is where you can get a panoramic view of giant hands. Still, you can take the camera outside the railing to get the road below the hands.
- From a corner of the bridge:
If you cannot wait for the crowds, you can take a narrow angle of the bridge. You can still show to everybody on Facebook where everyone desires to visit.
- From the bottom up:
If you are a fan of photography and the spectacular scenery, you can shoot from the bottom with the flower garden. It is for sure a unique angle with the whole hands towards the blue sky.
- A single hand photo:
In this case, you should be in the middle building of the bridge, taking from the base of the giant hand through the window glass for a perfect single hand photo.
In conclusion, if Da Nang is one of your destinations in your Vietnam itinerary 2 weeks, do not miss the Golden Bridge with its impressive design on the peak of Ba Na Hills. It is where you could immerse the spectacular view as well as taking such many beautiful photos.
