IF you're anywhere near the area, you should definitely check out the fortress. I only covered a part of it during a five hour visit and it was awesome... walking along the wall is peaceful and so many beautiful views. Cool little temples scattered along the way.

Worth the day trip from Seoul. The near by Palace is okay but the fortress is the highlight. I walked the entire length of the wall and the scenery and photo opportunities were fabulous. For the lazy you can take the inexpensive train thingy if you prefer. Either way, its a nice attraction to visit.

Lovely and well developed, this is an excellent place to learn some of Korea's long history, see beautiful natural surroundings, and get a lot of exercise all at the same time. It is not so strenuous that it can't be enjoyed by all ages, and it also wasn't as (over) commercialized as so many things are in Korea. Really enjoyed this one, and expect to see more of it soon. It was also very reasonably priced!

The fortifications are vast. It will take a few hours to walk round along the walls. It is quite an exercise as a big part of it is a hill. But the areas have been nicely done up, so it is very pleasant, though the ugly modern Suwon skyline is always around everywhere. Most of the buildings have been rebuilt but it is nicely done. The originals are not really very old to start with, just over 200 years old. You can get to Suwon on the Seoul metro. From Suwon station, it is a 30-minute walk across the city centre, or you can take a bus. There are many.

A must visit. If you're staying in Seoul and want to go where not a lot of tourists go to, this is the place. It is worth the trip. It's historical and architecturally beautiful. The long walk around the fortress is a lot of work but it's okay because there is a lot to see outside the fortress. Was walking around the fortress around sunset and the setting sun was just so beautiful and relaxing to see.
