Historic Site Tourist Spot
What was once the gate of the Suwon Hwaseong fortress, Paldalmun Gate sports views from the top of the wall. As you walk along National Treasure (number 402) you'll witness history dating back to 1794. The gate consists of two walls, one is crescent shaped and one provides additional protection. Look for the names of all the people who helped in building the gate inscribed on the wall. The site sits among the bustle of busy streets and alleys, so you can go shopping or grab a bite.

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.
