The Ruyi Bridge is at Shenxianju, Taizhou, Zhejiang, China, and is believed to be glass shaped, it spans 100 meters across the east and west gorges of Shenxianj. According to reports the construction of the bridge began in 2017 and was completed in 2020.
Many people on social media are in disbelief of the bridge’s whacky design.
One social media commentator asked: “IS IT REAL?!?!”
You best believe your eyes because the ‘bending bridge’ is not a product of computer imagery like many first guessed.
It is a real architectural marvel that more than 200,000 brave visitors have already walked over.
It is made with three undulating bridges and the deck is partly made of glass.
The bridge design is inspired by a jade ruyi, a curved object that is used as a symbol of good fortune in China.
“The rigid and soft shape is perfectly integrated with the natural scenery, just like a jade ruyi in the sky, and like a fairy draped silk,” the bridge creators explain.

China’s other vertigo-inducing attractions
The Ruyi Bridge isn’t China’s only spine tingling attraction.
China is also home to the world’s longest and highest glass-bottom bridge, The Zhangjiajie Glass Bridge.
If that’s not enough for you, try walking over the East Taihang Glasswalk on Taihang Mountain near Handan city in China’s Hebei Province.
For added scare factor, the bridge has an illusion of glass shattering underneath your feet as you walk across it.
Obviously the architect thought it would be funny to scare the life out of tourists and well, it is.
Check out this video of tourists fighting with their minds as the glass “cracks” underneath them. Don’t feel guilty for laughing, we certainly did.
