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

Chinese tourists now have a new way to see North Korea -- from a glass-floor suspension bridge hanging hundreds of feet directly above the river that separates the two countries.

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.
