  • One of the best I enjoyed at Hwaseong Fortress is sitting on a wooden floor in the gate and gawking at a stream facing cool wind.  more »
  • This is a stunning site to behold. There are walking paths, coffee shops along the way. Not to be missed.  more »
  • This is a water gate on Suwon fortress. Nice place to have a big break as the view is beautiful, big hall to sit, there is some water rather dry anywhere else along the wall. Cool place.  more »

Where to stay in Suwon

The accommodations in Suwon tend to lie in clusters throughout the city. Conveniently located for onward travel, one such group sits by the main train station, and includes basic hotels and luxury chains with commanding views of the downtown area. Look to the east of Highway 1 for another wide range of lodging choices, where the gridded streets pack in newer hotels and budget-friendly guesthouses, all close to the main urban sights and pleasant public parks.
