If you suffer from acrophobia, this article about the world’s largest and highest glass-bottom bridge probably isn’t for you. The same goes for those of you who suffer from xenophobia, since the bridge in question is being built by the Chinese using an Israeli architect’s designs.
The bridge was designed by Haim Dotan, and is scheduled to open in July. As these architectural renderings demonstrate, it will offer breathtaking views of the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon area, one of China’s most popular national parks.
[The bridge] will stretch 430 meters (1,410 feet) long and 6 meters (20 feet) wide, hovering over a 300-meter (984-foot) vertical drop.
For those of you who aren’t impressed by a see-through bridge that hangs 1,000 feet in the air, the bridge will also offer bungee jumping.
The Grand Canyon of Zhangjiajie skywalk will also offer the world’s highest bungee jump, stealing the title from Macau Tower’s 233-meter (764-foot)-high attraction.
Impressive. Not as impressive as the world’s largest “glass bottom boat,” which probably took place in Japan. But even so, it’s still very impressive.
