    Located on the West-flowing Creek near won, the number of the sinter rainbow gate will look water Beach and look from a distance it looks like a pair of glasses featuring an arched bridge. If you dare to look at Mars even find art around carefully to sleep can be confusing

    If you can't do the entire tour that door is the prettiest with the river that runs through the arches (possibility to cross on a stone lookout) and presence of a nice Pagoda on the left (outside l view). So there is possibility to make very nice photos. A small lake is also present and with the illuminated version of the ramparts c is really magical and romantic

    During the day you can sit inside. Closing the door at night and you can't get in because you turn the fire even at night is beautiful.

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.
