What was once the gate of the Suwon Hwaseong fortress, Paldalmun Gate sports views from the top of the wall. As you walk along National Treasure (number 402) you'll witness history dating back to 1794. The gate consists of two walls, one is crescent shaped and one provides additional protection. Look for the names of all the people who helped in building the gate inscribed on the wall. The site sits among the bustle of busy streets and alleys, so you can go shopping or grab a bite.

Paldalmun isn't connected to the fortress, but is rather an isolated gate surrounded by modern buildings. It might make for a nice photo, but I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to visit it... more »
You can visit the Hwaseong Fortress from this gate. The entrance fee is super cheap and visiting during the end of winter was a good choice. A great place for a simple hike and appreciating the historical values of this world heritage.
The gate is nice to look at and take photos of. The area around it is quaint with some decent spots to eat and shop. However, if you are staying in Seoul, I wouldn't suggest making a trip out here to visit.
