I just came across a great reason to visit the Hunan province of China.

The world’s highest and longest glass bottom bridge is set to open in Zhangjiajie National Park this July!

Back in 2010 I had a chance to visit the Grand Canyon Skywalk during a trip to Vegas. The Skywalk was an awesome experience, offering amazing views. China’s bridge sounds quite similar just a whole lot longer and higher up from the ground.

The new bridge will “span two cliffs in the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon area, it will stretch 430 meters long and six meters wide, hovering over a 300-meter vertical drop” according to CNN.

For those of you with a fear of heights, I’d suggest not visiting!

CNN compares the Zhangjiajie skywalk to the Grand Canyon Skywalk. The Skywalk is just 21 meters long and is 200 meters up. Talk about a major difference.

The new bridge was designed by Israeli architect Haim Dotan and could hold 800 people at a time. It will also offer the world’s highest bungee jump beating out the Macau Tower which is currently at 233 meters high.

Would you be interested in visiting China’s new glass bottom bridge? I’d love to check it out!
