Construction of landmark skywalk in Thailand’s southernmost district of Betong to resume
Thailand’s southernmost district of Betong is yet to build up a skywalk as a major landmark to attract more tourists later this year, an official said on Wednesday (June 17).
The construction of Aiyerweng skywalk in the Thai-Malaysian border district has been 77 per cent completed but been temporarily suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic since the last few months, according to Ari Nuchusuk, the permanent secretary of Aiyerweng subdistrict administrative organisation.
Construction materials are yet to be supplied from China in the latter phases of construction of the 100-metre-high, 61-metre-long skywalk, calculated to cost some 93 million baht (about US$2.98 million), Ari said.
Given Aiyerweng skywalk overlooking a sea of mist, more tourists are expected from Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand to visit Betong for sight-seeing trips. – Xinhua
