GEOGRAPHY

Flags on Hwaseong .

Suwon
Suwon
lies in the north of the Gyeonggi
Gyeonggi
plain, just south of South Korea
Korea
's capital, Seoul
Seoul
. It is bordered by Uiwang
Uiwang
to the north-west, Yongin to the east, the city of Hwaseong to the south-west, and also shares a short border with Ansan
Ansan
to the west.

There are a few hills around Suwon. The highest of these is Gwanggyosan to the north, on the border with Yongin , though those to the east are more numerous. Gwanggyosan is 582 metres (1,909 ft) above sea level .

Most of the streams passing through Suwon
Suwon
originate on Gwanggyosan or other nearby peaks. Since Suwon
Suwon
is bounded to the east by other hills, the streams, chiefly the Suwoncheon (and one notable tributary being the Jungbocheon ), flow southwards through the city, eventually emptying into the Yellow Sea
Yellow Sea
at Asan Bay . The entirety of Suwon
Suwon
is drained in this manner.

As is true of all the South Korean mainland, there are no natural lakes in Suwon. There are, however, many small reservoirs, namely Seoho (서호) near Hwaseo Station , Ilwon Reservoir (일원 저수지) near Sungkyunkwan University , Bambat Reservoir (밤밭 저수지) near Sungkyunkwan University Station , Ilwang Reservoir (일왕 저수지) in Manseok Park , Pajang Reservoir (파장 저수지) near the North Suwon
