Hello. I’m Byul, Korean word means ’star’, Today I’m on the Skywalk of Oryukdo. This place is designated as Scenic spot No.24. of Cultural Properties. Let me go. gogogo The old name of the Skywalk of Oryukdo is “Seungdu-mal.” Seungdu-mal is called as ‘Seungdu-ma’ as it looks like a horse’s saddle. The sea-loving horse looked at six islands of five and six in turn. After that, the bulging part of ‘Seungdu-mal’ is cut deep into a ferry pier and hills on entrance. This hill is where the skywalk is. “Here I can see the sea, So good to see the sea. And I feel like walking on the ocean.” The Oryukdo skywalk was opened on October 18, 2013. It’s a 15-meter-long glass bridge with a steel beam on top of a 35-meter coastal cliff and 24 glass plates connected to a horseshoe. The floor glass is 12 millimeters long and is specially made by attaching bulletproof films to four glass plates. This 55.49 millimeter thickness bulletproof glass could bear very heavy loads. The sight of the waves hitting the cliff through the transparent glass beneath my feet made me feel dizzy. Skywalks’ beautiful and colorful sea view made this place to famous filming location. Tsushima island can be seen the closest in good weather. Cool sea breeze and open view make walkers on cloud nine. When I got to Skywalk, artificial fog caught my eye. This eco-friendly device, so called ‘Cooling Pog System’ sprays purified tap water at one-millionth size of raindrop through special rope to reduce the ambient temperature by up to five degrees and reduce fine dust. “I thought it was smoke, but it was water. It’s cool.” Skywalk has very nice view of mountains and seas. Besides, No entrance fee really surprised me. If you’re new to Busan, I strongly recommend this place. Seeing the sea view through transparent floor might scare you a little, though. See you next time. Good-bye!
