Shiziguan floating bridge

Driving on water surface through the Shiziguan floating bridge

Located in Xuan'en County of southwestern Hubei province, in People's Republic of China, the Shiziguan floating bridge is one of the most spectacular bridges in the world.

Is the floating bridge in China real?

Tucked away within the Shiziguan scenic area, and surrounded by lush green forests, the wooden plank bridge runs through the middle of the river, at the water level. It’s also known as Shiziguan water highway or Shiziguan water plank road. Walking or driving on the bridge gives people an amazing sensation that they're moving on the water surface.

Known as the "Long Bridge Of Dreams", the bridge spans the Qingjiang river. It’s 1,640 feet (500 metres) long and 4.5 meters wide, built over a dazzlingly winding turquoise river. The water depth is 60meters. The bridge has a speed limit, to keep it from creating a big wave. The bridge opened to the public on 1st May 2016.
