China’s glass-floor tourism craze arrives at North Korea’s doorstep

New overlook hundreds of feet over border river opens amid North Korean paranoia about prying eyes, COVID threats

The Changbai Millennium Cliff City, which opened on Saturday, features a large ferris wheel, a catapulting swing ride that launches tourists out toward the North Korean border, and an A-shaped glass-floor bridge allowing visitors to look down into Hyesan and the Yalu River 60 meters (200 feet) below.
