The Nong Khai Skywalk at Wat Pha Tak Suea has become a popular tourist destination, where visitors can see the Thai and Lao sides of the Mekong River and experience cool temperatures of early winter.
The destination has grown in popularity, as the province approaches its tourism high season. For public safety and crowd management purposes, Wat Pha Tak Suea has allowed only 20 people to be on the skywalk at any one time.
The skywalk is part of the province’s tourism development program of turning Nong Khai’s Pha Tak Suea area into a tourist destination, connecting Nong Khai with the provinces of Loei and Bueng Kan. The project cost 17 million baht to construct a U-shaped skywalk that extends out from the cliff. The project has been open to the public since April 6th this year.
