Nothing about this bridge inspires confidence. It is made of rope and rickety planks with huge gaps between them. Just to make you feel more secure, the remnants of a similar bridge is left in tatters on the right-hand side.

It is probably the worst still-functioning bridge in the world, yet tourists flock from around the world to test their nerves on this crumbling structure.
