Being the backbone of Seoul in the manufacturing complex, Gyeonggi province is home to many manufacturing sites of large conglomerates and highly developed cities. Here are three places that you should consider landing on your travel bucket list!
1. Hwaseong Fortress
Take a time travel to the Joseon dynasty as you roam around the Hwaseong Fortress. It took two years(1794-1796) for the fortress to be constructed and is also believed to be scientifically built. Stretching 5.52 kilometers, you can find unique military facilities. The Hwaseong Fortress was designated as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site in December 1997.
2. Jebu Island

The “Maebawi (falcon rock)” is a sight to see in Jebudo if you wish to enjoy nature and some avian creatures for relaxation. You can also witness the beautiful parting of the sea in Jebu Island.
