Spanning the bay between Jinjiang County and Nan'an County, west of Fuzhou City, China, is the beautiful 12th century Anping Bridge, also known as Wuli bridge, built of huge stone blocks. It is more than two kilometers long, 2,070 meters to be exact, and close behind the 2437-meters-long Constantine's Bridge across Danube, which is considered to be the longest ancient bridge in the world. Until 1905, Anping Bridge was the longest bridge in China.

The bridge lies in the prefecture-level city of Quanzhou, crossing what originally was a tidal estuary of the Shijing River that separates the town of Anhai (in the county-level city of Jinjiang) east of the river, from the town of Shuitou (in the county-level city of Nan'an) west of the river. Anhai was formerly known as Anping, from which comes the bridge’s name.
