White Dragon - Longest Glass Bridge In Vietnam

Vietnam launches a new attraction for tourists with a head for heights with the opening of a glass bottomed bridge suspended 490 feet above a lush jungle. The Bach Long pedestrian bridge, whose name translates to "white dragon," is Vietnam's third glass bridge. 

The bridge snakes around dizzying cliff faces before spanning a dramatic valley between two peaks, hitting a total length of 690 yards. The floor of the bridge is made from French produced tempered glass making is strong enough to support up to 450 people at a time.

The company says it is the world's longest glass bottomed bridge, surpassing a 1,725 foot structure in Guangdong, China. Officials from Guinness World Records are expected to verify the claim next month. Vietnamese tourism chiefs are seeking to lure visitors back after two years of Covid-19 shutdowns that kept out foreign travelers.
