The World’s Longest Glass Bottomed Bridge Now In China

When I first saw images of this bridge spanning Lianjiang River, I was instantly reminded of bridges in South Korea or the one in Switzerland. Both of which were iconic to the K-drama series, Crash Landing on You. This new bridge in China though is neither. What it is is setting a new world record, however, for longest glass bottomed bridge in the entire world.

The suspension bridge connects two sides of a gorge 660 feet above the river and has a capacity of 500 people. Suspended from cables and supported by two red towers at either end, it’s constructed using three layers of tempered laminated glass, and has a transparent bottom that allows tourists to look directly down at the water. There are also large viewing areas where visitors can stop to take photos. The glass-bottomed feature offers a pretty cool perspective, but if you’re afraid of heights, this bridge might just be your worst nightmare.

Because of its beautiful glass bottom, this is sure to be a popular spot for photos.
