- Amazing photos of the world's longest bridges
In the race to build the biggest and baddest bridges of them all, record-hungry China tends to dominate in hard stats; five out of the top 10 suspension bridges are there, for instance.
So instead of a China-heavy list, Travel+Leisure is focusing on variety. Our unusual categories include the world's longest inhabited bridge (straight out of a fairy tale) and longest tree-canopy walkway (not for the faint of heart or stomach).
Yahoo Travel is publishing half of Travel+Leisure's most eye-popping lengthy bridges here; click on the photo above to see them. And for even more of the world's longest bridges, visit Travel+Leisure's website:
- Stunning photos of private islands for rent (some are even affordable)
What if we told you that you could rent an entire island for less per night than the cost of a medium-rare steak in Manhattan? What if we told you that one of the most beautiful resorts in the world is located off the coast of Cambodia … and that you and your 65 closest friends could have it to yourselves for a week – with a promise of personal infinity pools at every villa? Were you also aware that you can see the northern lights and orcas in the same day from a lighthouse in Norway, with no one around for miles?
Private island rental is not out of reach for most budgets, if you know where to look. There are entire companies that act as umbrella companies for a range of private island rentals.
Yahoo Travel decided to round up these favorites among the world’s private island rental pool. Some of them are definitely for CEO budgets only, but others are more affordable. If these atoll getaways don’t make you want to travel … nothing will. | By Jenny Adams, Yahoo Travel
