FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I visit the Golden Hands Bridge in Da Nang, Vietnam?

Contiki doesn’t offer a visit to the Golden Hands Bridge as an Included Experience or a Free Time Add On, however you can visit the Bridge yourself on Day 5/7/22 (Vietnam Experience, Vietnam Highlights and Big Indochina Adventure). This is a free day in Hoi An. Our Trip Managers can advise you on how to get to the Golden Bridge, and there are many day trip companies that can take you there. Though bear in mind, you may miss out on a Free Time Add On like a visit to the Marble Mountains.
