World’s First Glass Bottomed Bridge Opens in China

The world’s longest and highest glass bridge has opened in the Shiniuzhai Geopark in Hunan Province, southern China.

At nearly half a kilometre (430m) in length, the bridge is suspended a dizzying 300m above ground with a deck made from 99 panes of glass.

The 6m-wide bridge cost USD3.4m to build, and was designed by Israeli architect Haim Dotan.

To soothe tourists’ nerves, authorities allowed people to test the strength of the glass with sledgehammers, and to drive cars on the see-through deck.

800 people are allowed on the bridge at once, and a total of 8,000 people a day are allowed to cross it.

Advance tickets for the bridge cost USD20.
