The Tsing Ma Bridge is the great bridge of Hong Kong that connects the Airport here in Lantau Island to Hong Kong Proper. Thius bridge is even longer than the famous and my all time favorite bridge, the Golden Gate Bridge of San Francisco. It connects the two islands namely Tsing Yi and Ma Wan at both ends and continues to Lantau Island and they even have a famous observation deck built just beside the famous bridge. It is purported to be the longest suspension bridge with both rail and road traffic in the world and was built and finished in 1997. It is 3 lanes of traffic per side and it has a main span of 1,377 metres (4,518 ft) and a height of 206 metres (676 ft) and has two railway lines and two road lanes enclosed below the bridge it can still operate and transfer passengers and their luggage to and from the airport.

It is best viewed from the Visitors Center and Viewing Deck that lies along Tsing Yi Island.
