48 Hours in Seoul
by Joshua Berida | August 23, 2018
Also known as the Hwaseong Fortress, this is an imposing structure stretches for approximately 5.5km. Its architects carefully thought of its design, they used specific types of bricks called Jeondol and Seokjae. These have holes where guards can use their spears, guns and arrows in the event that invaders tried to storm the city. You can walk on the pathways on the surrounding wall to get overlooking views of the city below. The fortress made it to UNESCO’s Heritage List in 1997. It may take up to 2 hours to get to this destination by public transportation; you can do this as a day trip from Seoul.
