Depart from Seoul and head to Suwon, the only completely walled city in South Korea. Enjoy some free time at a traditional market in Suwon or visit Hwaseong Haenggung Palace.

Marvel at the Suwon Hwaseong Fortress which was designated as UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. Designed by the most inspiring ancient architect named Jeong Yak-Yong, the fortress is a fusion of science and industry and incorporates Chinese ingenuity into its plans.
