    The world's longest glass-bottomed suspension bridge opened for visitors in Shiniuzhai National park in China earlier this week, with drone footage capturing visitors walking along the structure on Wednesday.

    There are two glass bottomed bridges built in Hunan province, China. The one you mentioned is a suspension bridge with 300m in length, 2-3m wide, 180m above the water. The other one is a cable-staged bridge with 430m in length, 6m wide, 300m above the water, as is located in Zhangjiajie.

    They are both number one in its kind in the world.

    Two different conceptualizations of the world. That's also what Presidents Putin and Xi said at the UN Summit. Compare that with Obama's hyperbolic and aggressive speech (which was ignored by both leaders).

    People will eventually see the difference.

    This was once the happy hunting ground of Blackfoot nation before you exterminated them. Look at the barren land now! :(

    I think Modi and Nawaz should start at oposite end of this bridge and meet in the middle for solving Kashmir issue.
    knowing Nawaz, he will probably crap his pants and send Raheel Sharif to do the talking
