    Watch your step! World's largest glass walkway opens in China with panoramic views... and a vertigo-inducing 2,350ft drop over a valley
    • The horseshoe-shaped glass floor walkway in Chongqing extends 87.5ft from the edge of a cliff
    • It is the longest cantilever bridge in the world, beating Arizona’s Grand Canyon Skywalk by 16.4ft
    • Located in south-west China, the bridge has been named Yuanduan, meaning ‘at the end of the clouds’
    • The bridge can accommodate up to 200 people at once, with visits capped at 30 minutes

    Daredevil tourists have a new place to get their kicks after one of the world’s most thrilling – or terrifying – attractions officially opened in China this week.

    The horseshoe-shaped glass walkway in Chongqing extends 87.5ft from the edge of a cliff, allowing visitors to feel as though they are walking on air with the valley floor 2,350ft below their feet.

    With jaw-dropping panoramic views from its observation deck, it is the longest cantilever bridge in the world, beating Arizona’s Grand Canyon Skywalk by 16.4ft.

    Brave up and pursue one if you are Indian Buddhist or Hindus. Muslims don't need to waste the time, her parents won't agree the marriage. :-)

    In India, bride have to give marriage gifts to bridegroom;
    for your reference, in China, bridegroom give betrothal gift to girl's family. Chinese girls must have equal status at home, most of them don't like to live as housewife, and they must control family budget:(, husband has to go back home as early as possible every night, after work:cray:. Good luck.

    China seems to be unrivaled when it comes building more gigantic & exquisite mega-structures like these.

    And cheers to the lovely girls there.
