To admire the beauties of an authentic nature, a bridge was built that allows you to observe the 360 ° panorama, how? Simple, it is a tempered glass bridge where those who are walking along it will be able to look above, below, to the right or to the left and will always see the natural spectacles offered by the place that houses the bridge which, moreover, is the longest in the world in glass.
The HIGHEST and LONGEST GLASS BRIDGE in the world has been inaugurated
#The “White Dragon”: the 632 meter long bridge
It is located in Vietnam, in the north of the country, and more precisely in the province of Son La, a place that we Westerners could define as magical. Where green tea crops, expanses of flowers and the Pha Luong, the 2000-meter mountain that rises in the province, create a unique landscape. It is in this place that the “White Dragon” (Bach Long in the original language) appears, the longest glass bridge in the world. 150 meters high and 632 meters long, the Vietnamese glass bridge has beaten the current holder of the world’s longest glass bridge, a 526-meter Chinese bridge in Guangdong province. The infrastructure, which will soon win the Guinness Book of World Records, was built by the French company St. Gobain in super tempered glass but, despite its robustness, there is a maximum number of people who can climb at the same time, about 500.
# A new tourist attraction to bring visitors back to Vietnam
“When travelers are standing on this structure they can admire the true beauty of nature,” said Hoang Manh Duy as he unveiled the new glass infrastructure. Therefore, the intent of those who built this glass suspension bridge is to make that part of the country that is little visited but with unique natural beauty become a tourist. The new attraction is hoped to be the means to bring visitors back to Vietnam, especially after two years of closure. The province where there is the “White Dragon” is also characterized by traditional villages, excellent trekking routes and, during the rainy season, suggestive waterfalls. Like a dragon, the bridge winds around some rocky walls. Here are some photos.
