Flying Suwon is a helium-filled balloon linked with ropes near the Changryongmoon in Paldal District. The balloon, which can carry up to 20 passengers at a time, allows for a view of the fortress grounds and surrounding neighborhood from above. Depending on weather conditions, the balloon will take you up anywhere from 100 to 150 meters and stops for about 7 to 10 minutes, giving you enough time to get a perfect photo and a good look at the tiny cars in traffic below.
