A skywalk on the piers of the Dokgae Bridge dubbed “Naeil-ui Gijeoksori (Train Whistle of the Future)” has attracted more than 200,000 visitors in just one year, said the Gyeonggi Provincial Government. From Jan. 1 to Dec. 21 last year, as many as 219,683 people visited the skywalk.

Built on the Dokgae Bridge, which suffered severe damage during the Korean War with only five piers remaining, the skywalk is 105 meters long and 5 meters wide. Through see-through floors made of tempered glass, visitors can take a view of the Imjin river bank.

The “Train Whistle of the Future” skywalk is located in Imjingak park, 1400-5 Majeong-ri, Munsan-eup, Paju City, and is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. from November to February, and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. from March to October, while it is closed on every Monday. Ticket prices are 2,000 won for adults, and 1,000 won for those who are 12 or younger.
