Hwaseong HaengGung, Suwon
(3.5/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
Built on the slope of a hill within the walls of a fortress, Hwaseong HaengGung served as the king’s out-of-town residence during times of war and occasions when he visited his father’s tomb. The 18th-century palace, which was severely damaged during the Japanese colonial period, was restored based on information from detailed court records and opened to public in 2003. When it was not occupied by the king, the governor used the palace as his office. Start your tour with a visit to the exhibition hall and 3D theater outside the front entrance, then see how the area looked in the past at the square in front of the palace. If you’re visiting between March and November, you can catch a changing of the guard ceremony and a demonstration of martial arts. Look for the sacred tree at the entrance, pick up a piece of paper and a pen lying next to it, write down your wish, and tie it to the tree.
