World's Largest Aerial Tramway Opens in Vietnam

Don’t look down

Austrian engineering company Doppelmayr/Garaventa—better known for rigging gondola systems for ski areas in the Swiss Alps—has now completed a record-breaking tramway across Vietnam’s Ha Long Bay.

Ha Long Bay is an Unesco world heritage site renowned the world over for its beautiful 1,600+ limestone islands. The area welcomes roughly 7 million tourists a year.

The more than $282 million tramway was built to connect the Bai Chay district of Ha Long City to one of the world’s largest ferris wheels.
