  • Information
    Introduction
    With a design inspired by the royal vehicle used by King Gojong and palanquins of the Joseon Dynasty, Hwaseong Fortress Tourist Trolley gives passengers a comfortable tour around the main attractions of Suwon Hwaseong Fortress, including Yeonmudae Post, Hwahongmun Gate, Hwaseomun Gate, Paldalsan Mountain, Hwaseong Haenggung Palace, Paldalmun Gate, Suwon Hwaseong Museum, and more. Formerly known as Hwaseong Train, the vehicle went through a transformation and changed its name to Hwaseong Fortress Tourist Trolley. It also changed its route to a tour course that circulates through all the major attractions in Suwon Hwaseong Fortress.

    The trolley is divided into four units - one main driving unit and three passenger cars – with a maximum capacity of 44 passengers and moves at an average speed of 15km per hour. All seats have heaters installed and an earphone jack that provides an audio guide of Suwon Hwaseong Fortress in English, Chinese and Japanese.
