There’s a brand new tourist attraction in town, and we can’t wait to see it in action. This is the Ai Yerweng Skywalk located in Yala’s Betong district, which is a 61-metre skywalk located at an altitude of ~600 metres.

This allows visitors to enjoy a view gobsmackin’ of a “sea of mist” right beneath their feet.

This skywalk is believed to be the longest in southeast Asia. It’s slated to open at the end of the year, and is almost “77% complete”, says Melissa Yotkhayan, a tourism developer at Ai Yerweng Subdistrict Administrative Organisation.

The skywalk aims to attract both local and foreign tourists to the district while also creating job opportunities for locals.
