Don't look down: the longest glass-bottom bridge in the world has opened for tourists

Vietnamese Bach Long footbridge, name which translates as “white dragon”, has a length of 632 m and rises 150 m above the impenetrable jungle.

The floor of the bridge is made of French-made tempered glass, which makes it strong enough to withstand up to 450 people at the same time.

The glass floor also gives tourists the opportunity to enjoy stunning views of the landscape. “Standing on the bridge, travelers can admire the beauty of nature,” says a representative of the bridge operator Hoang Mang Dui.
