Golden Hands Bridge Vietnam

Golden Hands Bridge Vietnam

Wow. This bridge has been seriously doing the rounds on Instagram this year – and I can see why! It’s amazing to behold. The bridge, which has been nicknamed ‘the hands of God’ gives the illusion that you’re being held up by two enormous stone […]
