Bibendum
The superb Hwaseong Fortress (1796), built by King Jeongjo in homage to his father, forms a tight circle of ramparts around Suwon. Over 5km of walls ranging in height from 4m to 7m, punctuated by four gates (at each of the cardinal points) and around 50 defensive positions. This Unesco world heritage site commands fine views.
