Longest skywalk into Betong’s sea of mist to open end of year

Yala’s Betong district is waiting eagerly for the opening of a new tourist attraction – a 61-metre skywalk that allows visitors to enjoy Ai Yerweng’s sea of mist from an altitude of over 600 metres.

This skywalk, believed to be the longest in the Asean region, is scheduled to be officially opened by the end of this year, though tourists can still enjoy Ai Yerweng’s famous sea of mist at sunrise and sunset from the Ai Yerweng Tower.

Melissa Yotkhayan, a tourism developer at Ai Yerweng Subdistrict Administrative Organisation, said the skywalk is nearly 77 per cent complete and once it is ready for tourists, the authority will improve the surrounding scenery.

 

“The delivery of some materials from China has been delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic,” she said.

Meanwhile, Aree Noochoosuk, chief administrator of the Ai Yerweng Sub-District Administration Organisation, said the Betong Airport is almost ready.

 

“Once the airport is officially opened, we expect the Ai Yerweng skywalk to draw a lot of tourists, both Thai and foreign. This skywalk will not only stimulate tourism but will also create jobs and generate income for locals,” he said.

 

“Villagers can also earn extra by renting motorbikes to tourists.”

Just build a resort on the overhang with a glass bottom and charge the ....out of the people.  Of course having a Monk out on the end floating in space will bring in the Buddhists....

I thought the object of such "Skywalk" attractions was to have a clear view of an unnerving, vertiginous great drop, directly beneath ones feet?

 

At the moment the view appears to be of tree tops a couple of metres below.  And that greatly, or, on the walk out, totally obscured by a mass of girders.

 

Take away the trees and it will only be about 30-50 metres more.

 

The tower on its own gives a higher/better view of the surrounding landscape.

 

A classic Thai "monkey see, monkey do", cut price, lash up.

They were actually commissioned to build a badminton racquet, but misread the blueprint which said 61cm.
