If you are visiting Hwaseong Fortress, you should definitely stop by the north water gate. It is simply beautiful.

Meet some egret or heron alongside the river to enjoy some fresh air thank to the water (you can cross the water at some points through "stone" way) , beware of bicycles

For us this was the most beautiful part of the wall with the river running underneath the gate. We spent more time here than at any of the other gates, sitting by the river.

This is one of two water gates in the fortress area. The water wasn’t flowing strongly when we were there. Only through 3 of the openings. A few restaurants off to the side of the gate?

It is good to ensure you church this out whilst at the fortress. A nice place to rest in the shade and admire the view

Included in your entrance ticket, this is a must do to feel the bell's soft ring melting into the air while carrying your wish up to the miracle making place.

Good track and scenery, garden and gate. Nice landscape, you can shoot bow and arrow and it will be fun. You can also get to taste traditional Korean tea.

This is a very pretty gate in the fortress as it straddles the river. You can walk over it and enjoy the ambience.
