From Seoul: Suwon Hwaseong Fortress & Folk Village Day Tour

Embark on a captivating journey that delves deep into Korea's rich history and vibrant culture. Your day begins with convenient departures from central locations in Seoul. Your first destination is the Korean Folk Village, an immersive open-air museum that transports you back to the Joseon era. Here, you'll meander through authentically reconstructed traditional houses, witness folk performances, and immerse yourself in the daily lives of ancient Koreans. If you have ever read about ancient Asian history or watched a movie based on that period of history, this Korean Folk Village will make your imagination come to life. The Village is a recreation of the whole environment of the late Josen dynasty period for both domestic and foreign visitors to experience ancient history. From there, your journey will take you to the iconic Suwon Hwaseong Fortress, a UNESCO World Heritage site that stands as a testament to Korea's rich architectural and military heritage. Built during the late 18th century, the fortress boasts an intricate design, blending Eastern and Western architectural influences. As you walk along its majestic walls and explore its imposing gates and towers, you'll gain insights into the engineering prowess of the Joseon Dynasty. Dive into the bustling atmosphere of Suwon Nammun Market, a place brimming with energy and local flavors. Here, you can indulge in delightful street food, shop for unique souvenirs, and immerse yourself in the contemporary local life. Instead of visiting the market, the tour will have a late departure in the afternoon every Friday from August to mid-October. In August, the tour will start with a visit to Suwon Hwaseong Fortress followed by the night festival at the Korean Folk Village in the evening. Experience the enchanting Korean Folk Village Night Tour, where lantern-lit paths showcase centuries-old traditions under a starlit sky. In mid-October, after visiting the Korean Folk Village, the tour will feature a media art show at Suwon Hwaseong Fortress. The Suwon Hwaseong Media Art Show offers high-tech recreations of King Jeongjo's historical parade through vibrant lights and projections. It aims to provide immersive art experiences that both celebrate and educate about the fortress's rich history. Your tour will comfortably conclude with returns to central Seoul, leaving you with a treasure trove of memories from a day that beautifully blends the ancient and the present.
