Longest Stone-Beam Bridge
Length: 1.4 miles

Made from long stone beams that rest unmortared on stone piers over an estuary of the Shijing River, the Anping Bridge is one of the world’s oldest bridges, dating back to the 12th-century Song dynasty, and remained China’s longest bridge until 1905. (It’s also known as the Wuli Bridge: literally, “Five Li Bridge,” the li being a traditional Chinese measurement for 500 meters.) The simple yet majestic structure—the world’s longest pedestrian bridge—sits just above the water and is only about 10 feet wide in most parts. Highlights of walking the Anping Bridge include several decorative stone statues and the ornate Shuixin Pavilion, one of five remaining shelters for resting travelers.
