The longest glass floor bridge in the world is open to tourists

A HUGE glass bridge that claims to be the longest in the world has opened – but only for the brave.

Vietnam’s Bach Long footbridge – whose name translates to “White Dragon” – is 632 m (2,073 ft) long and 150 m (492 ft) above a vast jungle.

The bridge’s floor is made of French-made tempered glass, making it strong enough to support up to 450 people at a time.

The glass floor also means tourists have stunning views of the countryside while braving the spooky walk.

“When travelers stand on the bridge, they can admire the beauty of nature,” said Hoang Manh Duy, a representative of the bridge operator.

Bach Long is Vietnam’s third glass bridge, and local Bui Van Thach said he hoped it would encourage more tourists to visit the area.

Guinness World Records officials are expected to verify the claim next month.

The company says it is the longest glass-floor bridge in the world, surpassing the 526-meter structure in Guangdong, China.

Vietnam tourism chiefs are trying to lure visitors back after two years of Covid shutdowns that kept virtually all foreign travelers out.

If you’re keen to give it a try then you’ll be happy to know that Vietnam is open to Brits.

The country ended quarantine for international visitors and resumed 15-day visa-free travel for British holidaymakers.

And the new bridge isn’t even the scariest in the world.

A 100m (328ft) “Bending Bridge” opened in China last year, with many believing it was too crazy to exist.

In 2020, a 1,692-foot clear-bottomed bridge opened in Portugal last year.

Hovering 575 feet above the ground, the bridge drops steeply into the river and cliffs below and is the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in the world.

And in 2018 China was opened a £15 billion bridge spanning 34 miles from Hong Kong to Macau – the longest sea crossing ever built.
