Did you know that Suwon was once very close to becoming South Korea’s capital? Located only 30km from the actual capital, Suwon has since become known for being a relaxed day trip from Seoul. There’s plenty of things to do in Suwon in a day. You can walk around a UNESCO World Heritage site, go shopping, and even visit a museum devoted to entirely to toilets.
