Suwon sits just south of Seoul and is a short 40+min train ride away and is well worth visiting!
The old fortress, Hwaseong Fortress, has a good portion of its walls still intact, surrounding most of the old part of Suwon and is open to the public to walk on.
Walk around the markets and try some of the foods there, take the long stairs up to the top of the hill for a spectacular view of Suwon and the old palace below. Walk around the palace during the day and take in all of the beautiful architecture and rich colors.
If you have time to watch the sunset, I suggest hanging out in front of the old palace and enjoy the colors from there. After you are done there, be sure to go into the new part of town for some Korean BBQ and a bit of nightlife fun!
