Some interesting architecture in Suwon


Suwon is a bit south of Seoul.  This city was once surrounded by a fortress, but it has grown so much that the city now surrounds the fortress.  It takes several hours to walk around the entire fortress!

Han River

Not exactly a hike, but a looong walk along the Han River.  It was a sunny day which was really nice since it was about 30 degrees.  They have work out machines set up in a lot of parks and there was an area along this path as well.  It was like a small outdoor gym.  Many people were using the machines too.  (i.e. Nautilus equipment and elliptical cardio machines)  A very cool idea.

Biryong Falls, Seoraksan National Park

I recently took a trip to Korea and was very happy to be traveling with other people who enjoy hiking. We spent a few days at Seoraksan National Park.  It was beautiful.  This rather short hike was to Biryong Falls.
