Thailand's first glass skywalk will be open to public in March

NONG KHAI, 11 March 2016 (NNT)-Thailand’s first glass skywalk in Nong Khai province is expected to be open at the end of March. It is also dubbed the most beautiful sightseeing spot in the province.

The U-shaped skywalk, which is now 90% complete, is situated at Wat Pha Tak Suea temple in Sangkhom District. It is built on a cliff near the temple. It is sixteen meters long, and comes complete with glass floors and walls.

Its entire structure also extends six meters beyond the cliff. Four-centimeter-thick tempered laminated glass is being used for the floor while rust proof metal is used to strengthen the supporting structure. Once completed, the glass skywalk will be able to accommodate up to 20 people at a time.

Costing a total of 17 million baht, the skywalk is designed as a connecting point in the tourist route that links Nong Khai with Loei and Bung Kan provinces.

And the first typhoon that comes near will destroy it. If that doesn't happen it will decay in a few years from lack of maintenance until it makes its own disaster. I sure hope it's the first one and not the second because it just means more foreigners getting hurt in Thailand. What a waste of money. Looks like a good place to go fishing though.

Even though I live not far down the road, knowing the construction ability and quality of materials used in the vast majority of things built here, this is one attraction I believe I will opt out of. Thanks very much.

Most beautiful view in the province hmmmm.... ok, I am wondering what you can see that is not visible from the cliff, maybe when the smog clears?

Just as well it's in the location it is otherwise underneath might be standing room only as members of the BIB with cameras jostle for the best photo taking positions.

I'm sure the majority of Falangs will have the ability to see right through it.

Time to buy an open ticket out of Siam, set up a kiosk there, and sell insurance to those brave enough to step out on that thing. When it collapses as it certainly will, use the ticket and get out of Dodge.
