Breathtaking double-deck bridge becomes hot Chinese tourist attraction

Visitors have been flocking to the breathtaking new double-decker glass bridge in the mountains near Shenxianju, in China’s Zhejiang province, as seen on Monday.

The bridge was unveiled in late September after being under construction for three years starting in 2017. Visitors could be seen walking across the bridge, posing for photos, and looking through the glass floor.

“The vertical height of Ruyi Bridge is about 140 metres (460 feet). Tourists usually come to Ruyi Bridge after going to the South Flyover. Ruyi Bridge will be higher than the South Flyover, and there is a 12-metre-long (40 feet) glass platform at the bottom of Ruyi Bridge, on which visitors can take pictures from above,” said Li Shuangying, a local tour guide.

China has several competing bridges adorning its jaw-dropping mountain landscapes, such as the Zhangjiajie Glass footpath, in Hunan province, which opened in 2016, or the terrifying Huashan Plank Walk, in Shaanxi province.
