The record is currently held by 1,410.7-foot-long glass bridge over the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon in China's Hunan Province.

Moc Chau Island Tourist Area officials said the bridge, suspended nearly 500 feet over the ground, has a deck made from super tempered glass produced by French company St. Gobain.

Officials said only 500 tourists will be allowed on the bridge at a time for safety reasons.
