Glass-bottom suspension bridge opens in Benxi China

The bridge is designed to hold 800 people simultaneously

The longest glass-bottom suspension bridge in northeast China’s Liaoning Province made its debut to more than 10,000 excited visitors in the city of Benxi on Friday.

The bridge, which is on its trial opening, is around 369 metres long, three metres wide and 158 metres above ground level, and is designed to bear a total of 800 people crossing it simultaneously.

Hanging between two cliffs over a canyon at a scenic location, the bridge offers visitors the panoramic views of the natural landscape.

There are now dozens of glass walkways, bridges and sight-seeing platforms in scenic spots nationwide.

At the end of last year, another 488-metre-long glass suspension bridge opened to the public in north China’s Hebei Province.
