Chengyang Bridge

Top choice in Guangxi

In the district of Chengyang, around 18km north of Sanjiang, Chéngyángqiáo is the grandest of over 100 nail-less Wind and Rain Bridges in the area. This photogenic black-and-white structure (78m) was built from cedar and stone over 12 years in the early 1900s, and features towers with upturned eaves, pavilions where people gather to socialise or take shelter from the elements, and a sweeping corridor with handrails and benches.
