Vietnam just opened a 610m glass-bottomed bridge, said to be the longest in the world.

The Bach Long pedestrian bridge, features three layers of 40mm of tempered glass. Bach Long translates to "white dragon." Beneath it is a 150m plummet to a valley below.

The glass pedestrian bridge opened at the end of April and is located in the Moc Chau district of Vietnam's northwestern Son La province.

Despite the thin nature of the glass, Bach Long can support about 500 people at a time. The company behind Bach Long said it put the bridge to the test by having heavy cars and trucks drive over it.

No doubt someone's going to want to bungee jump off it!
