Travel Tip: If you happen to go on a public holiday, be prepared for a long queue. The wait could be little exhausting. Take along some munchies, cover yourself with sunblock & have a good amount of water. Summer sun in Korea could be really harsh!

Not for faint-hearted for sure :D…

Do not worry about the safety aspect, though. The Skywalk was recently constructed in 2013. It has 12mm glass section which is coated with bulletproof film. So don’t look down just go for it ;)
