This USD5.5 million floating toilet seat/bridge to exactly where you started is now officially the longest skywalk in the world, emulating Arizona's Grand Canyon Skywalk save for one distinctive feature: it's five meters longer.

Definitely not for the faint of heart, adrenaline is bound to be rushing through you when you traverse the overhanging glass surface 27 meters from the cliff's edge. The soon to come see-through walkway will allow you to view the river over half a kilometer beneath you (Americans take comfort: still not as deep as the Grand Canyon).

The walkway rests at one of the highest points of the mountains in Chongqing.
