WOW KOREA is not just about traveling for FREE. It is about meeting people who love traveling as much as you and people who have passion and love to share about the beauty of Korea, and for you to make good friends (and some said we are a big “family) in Korea, at the same time, show the world how beautiful Korea is and share Korea travel guide to your friends! Basically, just have fun, enjoy the trip (good food, nice places, super good hotels, etc), and share your experience on your social media such as Facebook, Instagram or blog! 🙂

ABOUT WOW KOREA trips:

  • In 2017, we had 5 field trips (3D2N), many monthly special mission/small group trips.
  • It is compulsory to attend the opening ceremony, and first field trip will be on the same weekend too. (It means your trip starts after the opening ceremony)

If you love traveling, love sharing travel tips with your friends on social media, have passion and love for Korea, and from Asia / Middle East country, I encourage you to join WOW KOREA!! This is probably gonna be the best thing you have ever experienced as an international student in Korea. (Cheers~)

Must-Visit in Danyang | Mancheonha Skywalk

You may have visited Danyang before but have never heard of this Skywalk in Danyang.  Mancheonha Skywalk was newly opened in July 2017. It is still very new to foreigners (and perhaps to Koreans too). If you try to search “Mancheonha Skywalk” on google, you might not be able to get much information in English. Of course, if you search on Naver, you can get many information about this skywalk in Korean. Try to search Mancheonha Skywalk in korean -> “만천하 스카이워크“, you might find some of the Mancheonha Zipwire photos on google image page.

 

YES! Mancheonha Skywalk is not just a boring skywalk place but you can actually do zipwire here! I have been to Jeongseon for Jeongseon Zipwire and it costs KRW 40,000. However, Mancheonha Zipwire costs only KRW30,000! It is cheap! I would like to recommend you to try this. No, we did not do the zipwire this time. But I would love to come back to Danyang again for Mancheonha Zipwire.

Danyang Mancheonha Skywalk

I visited Danyang last winter and Mancheonha Skywalk was not opened at that time. So I just went to visit some of the 8 scenic views of Danyang such as Dodamsambong and Stone Gate, and did paragliding (that was the best thing everrrr). I am glad that they opened up a new attraction in Danyang – that is the Mancheonha Skywalk! If you are planning a trip to Danyang, this is definitely one of the must-visit place in Danyang.

 

If you look at the photo above, Mancheonha Skywalk looks like 3 fingers sticking out. The outer part is made of glass. You are actually stepping on the glass and could see what is below your feet. *screams* If you are afraid of heights, you may be scared to walk on the glass because this skywalk is really high up in the sky. lol.

But, if you got up to Mancheonha Skywalk observatory, you will find really amazing, breathtaking and jaw-dropping view of Danyang! For a second, I thought I was in Europe.
