5The Wind and Rain Bridge, China

We begin our top 5 list with The Wind and Rain Bridge, located in Sanjiang County of Guangxi Municipality.

Also known as the Chengyang Bridge, Yongji Bridge and Panlong Bridge, the 100-year-old Wind and Rain Bridge was built in 1912 without a single nail by the Dong people, a minority ethnic group in China.

The bridge consists of 2 platforms, 3 piers, 3 spans, 5 pavilions, 19 verandas and 3 floors. Made out of stone, wood and tiles, this bridge is truly amazing.

A combination of bridge, corridor, veranda and Chinese pavilion which makes it so luxurious, the Wind and Rain Bridge has a total length of 64.4 metres and its corridor has a width of 3.4 metres.

Why is it called the Wind and Rain? The Dong people believe that this bridge will protect them from the elements.
