The tour will start at 09:00 AM with a visit of the Hwaseong Fortress.

The fortress was designated as Historical Monument No. 3 in January 1963, and in December 1997, it was designated a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site.
Afterwards, you will head to Hwaseong Trolley, a tourist trolley that travels between Mt. Paldalsan and Yeonmudae. The front of the trolley is shaped like a powerful dragon that signifies King Jeongjo, and the guest cars resemble palanquins that once carried the king during his excursions.
Finally, the tour will end with a visit of the Hwaseong Haenggung Palace. The palace is located outside of Seoul where king used to stay when he traveled, at war times, or when he visited tombs. Haenggung can be classified into three types depending on the uses. After this final visit, you will be taken back to your hotel.
