SEOUL TRIP 2018: SUWON HWASEONG HAENGGUNG PALACE

Nagpunta ako ng Suwon Hwaseong Haenggung Palace dahil nag-overnight stay ako sa friend ko pagkatapos ko sa Everland. So, bago ako bumalik ng Seoul ay naglibot na muna ako sa Suwon. Madali lang naman magpunta dito kung galing sa Seoul kasi subway lang hanggang sa Suwon. Isang ride lang from Seoul Station to Suwon Station (Dark Blue Lane) pero meron din Wangshimni Station to Suwon Station (Yellow Lane). Vice versa. Depende kung saan kayo mas malapit pabalik ng Seoul. Pagdating ko sa palace, nagulat ako na free entrance siya. Hindi ko alam kung anong event or holiday ba kaya free entrance.

Ito na yung trip ko sa Suwon. Ang ganda tignan ng kalsada sa Korea kasi ang ganda din ng mga puno kapag autumn. Lalo na yung walkway na napakaluwag.

Ito yung papunta na ako sa palace at ang ganda ng mga halaman. Ganyan yung entrance ng Suwon Hwaseong Haenggung Palace.

Ito agad ang sumalubong sa akin pagpasok ko. Si Jang-Guem at Min Jeong-ho ng Jewel in the Palace. Kaya kung fan kayo ng Jewel in the Palace, good place ito para sa inyo.

May mga stamp din sa bawat area sa loob ng palace na pwedeng souvenir. Take note, napakalaki ng lugar. Pwede kayong maligaw lalo na yung maliliit na pintuan niya na lulusutan, hahaha.

Maganda yung place at magandang mag-photoshoot. May ilan mga group or family na naka-hanbok (traditional Korean clothing) at ang cute nilang tignan. Aside sa marami kang matutunan sa history at culture nila, mag-eenjoy ka din sa lugar.

Nung palabas na ako, nakita ko yung restroom nila na nasa labas ng entrance ng palace. Nasa right side siya, pagkalabas ng palace.

Dito din ang film location ng Love in the Moonlight teaser na Boombastic ni Park Bo Gum my love. ^_^

Pagkatapos ko dito sa palace, dumaan ako sa right side dahil sa sign na may nakalagay na “Food Street”. Madami din cute couples na dumadaan dito para mag-date, hahaha. Kung mahilig din kayo sa cafe, puro coffee shop dito. Kaya madami kayong pagpipilian.

Sa dulo nito ay may Ediya Coffee at doon ako bumili ng waffle bago bumalik ng Seoul. Natuwa ako dito kasi meron silang nutrition information ng menu nila.

Another thing, kung gusto niyo din masubukan ang Korean school uniform. Meron din dito. Katabi lang ng Ediya Coffee at meron din sa katapat niya.

Tapos nadaanan ko din yung Suwon Hwaseong Fortress nung papunta na ako ng Suwon Station pabalik ng Seoul.

INFORMATION:

Introduction
A haenggung is a temporary palace where the king and royal family retreated to during a war. Hwaseong Haenggung Palace is the largest one of these, use by the Joseon kings since the time of King Jeongjo (r. 1776-1800). In addition to being used as a shelter during war, King Jeongjo also stayed here during trips to worship at his father’s tomb. The palace was the location of a splendid feast held on the 60th birthday of his mother, Hyegyeonggung Hong, and many other events, including award certificates for successful candidates of special national exams. These days, the palace serves as a venue for many traditional cultural performances and activities.
