A newly-opened glass-bottomed suspension bridge with 5D effects, the first of its kind in Vietnam, has worried female visitors due to potentially intrusive photography opportunities.
The bridge has worried female visitors due to potentially intrusive photography opportunities.
The bridge in Moc Chau District, which is 80 metres long, two metres wide and 20 metres high, was advertised to provide unforgettable experiences. However, it has stirred controversy.
Many women have fallen prey to ‘upskirt’ photos posted on a tourism forum.
The photos were published with the status warning that the bridge is just 20 metres high, so female visitors should not wear skirts.
A forum member said that the bridge management board should have predicted this problem to prevent people from taken such photos. Strict fines should be applied for the violators.
The photos received hundreds of comments. Many people wanted an investigation into who took the photo.
In addition, many tourists said the bridge was completely different from which has been advertised.

The bridge is above a stream with shallow water and it is easy to see people on the bridge from below.
“I was totally disappointed at the bridge which is decorated in gaudy colours and fake flowers,” said a visitor from Hanoi.

Many people said that the fake flower decorations didn't suit Moc Chau’s scenery.
A representative from the bridge management board said that the board would consider ways to prevent upskirt photography, including providing additional clothing for female visitors to wear when visiting the bridge. Dtinews
