Take a walk on the gate, or along the stream, and enjoy the traditional Eastern-style architecture. Browse through quaint stalls selling various souvenirs and local artworks as you go. Outside the wall of the gate, you can see a small pond underneath cherry trees, which look beautifull during the cherry blossom season.

Hwahongmun Gate reviews
Located above a stream this is the Water Gate for Hwaseong Fortress. Very picturesque and a good place to stop on the curcuit of the fortress walls. Not much water in the stream when we were there. more »
It's a very nice looking gate. I would have liked it if there would have been more water running underneeth it. more »
Half day, Wonderful experience in Suwon. Lot of good local foods.
The fortress wall and palace are great to walk around on a comfortable day.
