Things to do at Oryukdo Skywalk
This place looks straight out of a fairytale. No matter which side you look, you will see greenery, lovely colorful flowers, all shades of blue & deep grays.
15 meters long glass bridge gives a perfect opportunity for photo ops. The backdrop is spellbinding. If you go on a bright sunny day, you will be able to see Daemado Island.
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 ;)
You will have to cover your feet with the shoe cover. So much for the cleanliness & maintenance. No wonder every tourist spot in South Korea is clean & well kept :)
