Suwon is essentially a commuter town of Seoul, but has its own charms. It makes a good day trip from the capital (on the subway line), and has a strong and long-standing association with Samsung. The local K League football team are one of the best in the country.
The main attraction, though, is the fortress. It's reminscent of a mini Great Wall of China, and takes several hours to walk around. The views of the city are great, with forested areas on some sides and a copper bell to ring on the way round for good luck; it seems to echo across the whole city.
The restaurants and selection of saunas and DVD rooms are also impressive.
