Most people know South Korea from the Korean historical dramas that are being shown all over the world, so it is not surprising if people who visit the country tend to look for proof that these period/historical dramas really happened. Suwon is home to the Hwaseong Fortress, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Hire a car in Suwon and head on over to the fortress. The old city of Suwon used to be surrounded by the walls in this fortress. Despite the city’s expansion, the fortress has been well-maintained. Haenggung Palace is a must-visit place while you are within the fortress.
One of the best things to do while on vacation in Suwon is to eat and savor the local specialties. Book for a car for hire in Suwon and start your gastronomic adventure. Most of the time, it is better to eat at small roadside eateries since they offer authentic and delicious dishes. Also, most Korean restaurants only offer one or two dishes on their menu, so it is possible that you have to go from one restaurant to another to another in order to enjoy the best dishes in Korea. Don’t miss the chance to try out Suwon galbi, the city’s specialty.
