For practical tourists, there is nothing more inviting than the allure of a free attraction. So when a new attraction in China suddenly offered to waive its entrance fee for the weekend to mark its official opening, a mob of an estimated 10,000 tourists flocked to the site.

China’s Epic Glass Bridge Suddenly Closes 13 Days After Opening

China’s record-breaking glass bridge closed just 13 days after its opening, upsetting thousands of visitors.
