I crossed this bridge that stretches across Hangzhou Bay. It is actually the longest bridge crossing an ocean anywhere in the world. It was during one of my travels. This journey was from Shanghai to Ningbo and Hangzhou.

The bridge snakes in an “S” shape across the water, connecting the northern cities of Zhenjiadai, Haiyan, and Jiaxing City to the southern Zhenjiang Province cities of Shuiluwan, Cixi, and Ningbo City.

This amazing architectural structure is 23 miles in length and also features a 476-foot tower that you can do some sightseeing from.
