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



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.

Many thanks for posting this information.  I'll bet it will be a grand view.  I'll make certain I eat breakfast after I visit the glass sky walk.

The glass skywalk will be able to accommodate up to 20 people at a time - I suppose there is a fee, lets hope they stick to 20  :-[
