The Train Has Floor-To-Ceiling Glass Windows
The sky train offers people on board an expansive 270-degree view of the landscape below. The train has floor-to-ceiling glass windows but there is much more to the train than just a gorgeous view. The train is designed in Panda theme to remind China’s people of its most famous animal. The maximum capacity of one carriage of the train is 120 people and it can travel at a speed of 80 km/hr.

China’s 459-ft High Bending Glass Bridge Goes Viral On Social Media
The country has another bridge that’s too unreal to look real. Yes, a bridge in the Zhejiang province of China is taking the internet by storm with wacky architecture and design. The Ruyi glass bridge is 140 meters above the ground and is famously known as the bending bridge because of its structure. It was unveiled back in 2017 but was opened to the locals in 2020.
