China has opened a 50km floating walkway in the middle of the Hongshui River.

The walkway, which floats on top of the Hongshui River, is twice as long as the city of Manhattan and has already 60,000 tourists.

At night, the entire spectacle lights up, and tourists are treated to a dazzling display, including an impressive firework show.

This is the latest in a chain of massive Chinese tourism infrastructure projects, which includes the glass mountain walkway in Tianmen, which was opened to the public last August.

The walkway is supported by more than 200,000 floating objects – including a gigantic cartoon duck – which are anchored to the bed of the river

The vast structure is built to rise and fall in accordance with fluctuating water levels.
