Great Wall of Hwaseong, Suwon, South Korea

One lazy morning, a friend's message came.

"Since we are going near Anyang City, why don't you come with us, we'll visit Hwaseong Fortress in Suwon".

Nanay with superhuman speed, took her towel and the toilet door said "Blag!".

Hwaseong Fortress (C'mon Mr. Google help me here) is a restored impressive structure from the Joseon  Dynasty and if you say Joseon Dynasty, it means very, very, old Hehe. After reading files from the net, I found out that this fortress was made because the Korean King of that time wants to make Suwon the capital of Korea (which at that time the capital is Seoul and still). Building a city with defensive capabilities will allow growth because Suwon's location is strategically connected to China. Wow! Talk about Urban Planning.


Contrasting Old and New.

The Yeonmudae inside the Fortress also offers shooting with a bow and arrow for a price of 2,000 Korean Won for 10 shots.

If you want to burn belly fats, try walking along it's walls.
