You can hike around the fortress wall and enjoy wonderful views on a clear day. There are many places for a picnic, or if you want to enjoy traditional food, you will find some very quaint eateries offering very authentic home- style Korean food.

You can hike around the fortress walls and enjoy wonderful views on a clear, sunny day. The hike around the walls takes around an hour and a half and afterwards you can enjoy traditional food in one of several restaurants.

This is a hike in some sense. The locals go here for exercise, you will see them in gear and with walking poles. Why not follow suit? Take your camera for the best views of the city! Take some water and wear sensible walking shoes....More
