Earlier in the 1400s, some Japanese thought of constructing of an engineering wonder that could not only make it possible to move but be a miracle of its kind. Unfortunately, the dream was fulfilled in the 1800s, and the first hanging bridge was built.
Here is the listing of the top ten Longest Hanging Bridges in the world, according to their main span, just for you.
1.Akashi Kaikyo Bridge, Kobe, Japan (6,532 feet)
It is longest suspension bridge, with a length of almost four km. This bridge is an engineering achievement that is yet to be paralleled. The Akashi-Kaikyo connects the beautiful Awaji Island to Japanese city of Kobe. Bridge has a span of almost two kilometers. It also has a succession of observation hallways below, for those people who desire to see the construction. These hallways are usually called the Maiko Marine Promenade.
How to reach:
To get to Kobe, you can fly to Tokyo and then a high-speed train to Kobe. The train trip takes three hours max but may be pricey for some. In addition, you can take an overnight bus to Kobe for a lesser amount. The bridge is a small walk from the JR Santo Line in Kobe.
