1.Akashi Kaikyo Bridge, Kobe, Japan (6,532 feet)

It is longest suspension bridge, with a length of almost four km. This bridge is an engineering achievement that is yet to be paralleled. The Akashi-Kaikyo connects the beautiful Awaji Island to Japanese city of Kobe. Bridge has a span of almost two kilometers. It also has a succession of observation hallways below, for those people who desire to see the construction. These hallways are usually called the Maiko Marine Promenade.

To get to Kobe, you can fly  to Tokyo and then a high-speed train  to Kobe. The train trip takes three hours max but may be pricey for some. In addition, you can take an overnight bus to Kobe for a lesser amount. The bridge is a small walk from the JR Santo Line in Kobe.

  4. Who wrote the text for #9 ? Some of it makes no sense at all. e.g.  » This bridge should not be if you plan to endeavour to the Turkish Capital anytime soon. » or « The bridge was given to the public access during the worthy presence of dignitaries from a variety of countries.
