The tour begins at the Hwaseong Fortress, which is the wall surrounding Suwon, the capital of Gyeonggi-do. The impressive structure, built in 1794, also includes King Jeongjo’s Hwaseong Haenggung Palace(Temporary Palace), the biggest of all the “Haenggung,” which pertains to a shelter where the King may have rested or retired from war.
We then continue to the Samsung Electronics Building in Seocho-dong where you’ll see the Samsung D’light Global Exhibition. The area showcases the latest lineup of products from the Korean multinational electronics company. The name “D’light” is a combination of the words “digital” and “light” which correlates with the company’s vision of being a “guiding light to the digital world.”
Afterwards, we proceed to the National Museum of Korea which is the largest museum in Korea that houses historic assets from the ancient days to the modern era.
Lastly, we head to the Unhyungung Royal Residence, which was the home of young Gojong, who later became the Emperor of Korea during the Joseon Dynasty. The residence, under the orders of Queen Mother Jo was renovated into a grand, palace-like home. The Unhyungung, which means “small palace” is located right in the middle of the business district of Jongno-gu.
