Travel to Suwon by Train
Suwon is a walled city and provincial capital, about an hour's distance from Seoul. Since the late 14th century it has been a satellite town of Seoul, 26 miles (42 km) to the north, with which it is connected by rail and highway. It is traditionally known as "The City of Filial Piety". The late 18th century Hwaseong Fortress of Suwon is a fascinating must-see structure with its stone wall and 4 pagoda-topped arched gates. As an industrial center, Suwon houses a large Samsung Electronics factory. The South Korean railway system is a marvel of technological achievement and engineering. A train ride in Suwon is a great way to see the area and learn about its history. So board a comfortable and fast Korean train for an adventure like no other.
