Hwaseong, South Korea -- It was a beautiful Saturday morning when we went to one of the iconic destinations in Suwon, the Hwaseong Fortress. We were all tired from yesterday's camp work so this was the time to enjoy and bond with our global friends!

According to KTO, the Hwaseong Fortress was constructed under the guidance of Yu Hyeong-Won (1622-1673) and Jeong Yak-Yong (1762-1836), and is believed to have been constructed very scientifically. The fortress wall was built using Seokjae and Jeondol (bricks) and the holes between the bricks are just big enough to fire guns, arrows, or long spears through in case of an attack. 
Today, memories was forged forever in the fortress walls. (Veronika from Russia, Wakana from Japan, Adam and Ivan from the Philippines, UNESCO World Heritage Site Hwaseong Fortress, South Korea) Photo owned by Trà Giang Nguyễn.
