Looking at the top ten longest bridges, given that 9 out of 10 bridges are located in Asia, we can safely conclude that Asia is the land of long bridges.
Within Asia, China takes the undisputed crown, having built majority of the longest bridges - the longest of which - the Danyang-Kunshan Grand Bridge which stretches well over 164.8km or close to 4 marathon laps.
Compare the Danyang-Kunshan Grand Bridge of China with the Changhua-Kaohsiung Bridge of Taiwan.
China is an expansive country and has invested considerably to build up its transportation infrastructure over the past few years. These long bridges serve to "bridge" the distance between distant cities and town and bring great economic benefits in terms of domestic trade, logistics and travel.
This list is last updated in 23 October 2018, when the Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macau Bridge, the longest sea bridge linking Hong Kong, Macau and Zhuhai (55 km) is officially opened.
