Inspirock Rating:
3.5/5 based on 170+ 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.

  • This palace is not as spectacular as those in Seoul but still very great. It's nice to know that most of scenes in the TV series Daechang Gum set in here 
  • 来的时候是中秋期间,水原华城的城墙和行宫都对外免费开放,在行宫里可以回忆起小时候看大长今的画面,因为历史原因,建筑大多是新修的,但是还是有印象中的味道的!还定期有民俗表演,是个不错的体验~
