Completion of glass bridge near Goteik Viaduct expected in 2022

Myanmar’s first glass bridge, located near the Goteik Viaduct in Nawngcho (Northern Shan State), is expected to be completed by October 2022. The bridge, developed with Chinese designers and glass bridge experts, will be built on a project area of 17 acres and is estimated to cost approximately $5 million.

Cherry Muse Company will oversee the project which also houses restaurants, parks, rainbow slides, and vantage points for sightseeing. “Our tourism company has sent over 1,000 tourists to China’s Glass Bridge on a yearly basis. There are many issues when entering China like the need to queue and take medical tests. We are implementing this project with the thought that it would be better If Myanmar has a similar glass bridge. It would be cost-effective as well,” said Daw Lin Lin Htet Oo, tourism market in-charge of the Cherry Muse Company.

Cherry Muse will bear half of the cost of the bridge and the remaining half will be offered as shares. A memorandum of understanding for the project has been signed and it will lead to the creation of around 300 jobs, said Daw Lin Lin Htet Oo. “This glass bridge will be beside the world-famous Goteik Viaduct and you will be able to see the viaduct from here. I would like to invite Myanmar tourists here as well,” she said. China is home to seven glass bridges and they have been popular tourist stops over the past five years.
