Kiss Bridge has officially opened
After many days of anticipation, the Kiss Bridge project, an artistic masterpiece designed by famous Italian designer Marco Casamonti, officially opened to tourists on December 23rd, promising to become the most appealing destination on the pearl island.
The Kiss Bridge is 800m long and is made up of the northern and southern branches, that form a unified whole but have no connection, being 30 cm apart – ideal for a hug, handshake, or kiss. This distance is meticulously calculated so that the sunset falls in the middle of the two bridge tips on January 1 of each year, making this location one of the "most beautiful sunset viewing spots in the world."
The Kiss Bridge has a console structure (horizontal bridge structure with only one end fixed, the other end free) of up to 25m, supported by pillars inclined at 65 degrees. The total weight of the console structure on each side is up to 400 tons, which is equivalent to compressing 40 buses and hanging precariously in the middle of the sea with two inclined pillars. With this inclined pillar structure, Kiss Bridge has created something unprecedented in a pedestrian bridge on the sea, giving Phu Quoc and Vietnam tourism a distinctive symbol.
Kiss Bridge, designed as a sculpture on the sea surface, surprises the architectural world with its difficulty, as the soft lines like a strip of silk stretching out into the middle of the sea are also the structure that creates the bridge's stability.
The bridge, with its unprecedented design and structure, is expected to create a "second Golden Bridge phenomenon" for Vietnamese tourism.
