Description

Delve into Korean tradition and history by visiting Suwon Fortress and the Korean folk village!

A shuttle will pick you up directly from your hotel to take you to the Suwon.

First you will visit Suwon fortress, a majestic monument listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. This fortress, built by order of King Jeongjo in the eighteenth century, houses the tomb of his father accused of insanity and sentenced to death by suffocation.

After a traditional Korean lunch, you will reach the Korean folk village. You will discover the different architectural styles of the houses according to the social class of their original owners. The arrangement of Korean houses, the use of condiment fermentation jars and many other features of traditional Korean life under the Joseon dynasty will be explained to you by your English-speaking guide.

You will then watch a show featuring a mixture of traditional dance and music. You will be amazed at the talents of the tightrope walkers.

Finally the shuttle will then take you back to the hotel.
