Oryukdo Skywalk

Isabel Leong
Oryukdo Skywalk was built on Seungdumal, a border between the East and South Sea. Walking on this skywalk translates to "walking in the sky", or so the skywalk is intended to make you feel.This horseshoe-shaped bridge is set up against a 35-metre coastal cliff. With the entire bridge made of glass, you can watch the waves hit against the cliffs from under you.While some may be wowed by the transparent walkway, others felt it was nothing more than a pavement made of glass which juts out of a cliff.The skywalk overlooks the Oryukdo island, which comprises of 2 brotherly rocks.I was rather underwhelmed by the size of the skywalk, especially since it took quite some time to travel from town to the edge of Busan where the skywalk is. Being only 15 metres long, the skywalk can be cramped, especially when you have hordes of tourists coming to photograph the spot. To put the length in perspective, it does not take more than 5 minutes to complete the walk, including taking pictures on the skywalk.
