Visited Suwon during the Weekend. Suwon is a city below seoul. (Took me about 36min using the Mugunghwa from Seoul Station). One of the city’s famous tourist spot is the Hwaseong Fortress (UNESCO World Heritage). Hwaseong Fortress is an impressive structure from the latter part of the Joseon Dynasty and stretches for a total of 5.52km.

Haewooja Museum(Toilet Museum) – First destination in Suwon was the toilet museum. The museum was in the shape of a toilet and there were many interesting exhibits about how toilets have changed over the years.
