Vietnam has just opened its newest tourism attraction, which caters to those who enjoy heights. The Asian country, according to reports, has built a glass-bottomed bridge dangling 150 meters (490 feet) above a beautiful jungle.
The Bach Long pedestrian bridge
The Bach Long pedestrian bridge, located in the northwest Son La province, is built over towering cliff sides and spans a stunning and dramatic valley between two hills. According to reports, the bridge has a total length of 632 meters, and the glass floor is constructed of French-made tempered glass. The bridge is capable of carrying up to 450 people at a time.
According to Hoang Manh Duy, a spokesperson of the bridge’s operator, guests will be able to observe the beauty of nature while on the bridge.
It is the world’s longest glass-bottomed bridge, according to the business, surpassing a 526 m construction in Guangdong, China. Guinness World Records officials are expected to verify the claim next month.
According to reports, Vietnamese tourism officials are making every effort to attract more visitors after two years of COVID-19 shutdowns, which kept almost all foreign visitors out.
As previously reported, Vietnam ended quarantine for international visitors in mid-March and resumed 15 days of visa-free travel for citizens of 13 countries. Vietnam will also host the Southeast Asian Games in two weeks, with over 10,000 athletes and sports staff expected to attend.
According to reports, this is Vietnam’s third glass bridge.
