What do I need to know about living in Suwon?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Suwon, they said:

"Before retiring in Suwon, expats should be aware of the cost of living, which is generally lower than in other major cities in Korea. They should also be aware of the language barrier, as English is not widely spoken in the city. Additionally, expats should research the healthcare system in Suwon, as well as the availability of international schools for any children they may have. Finally, expats should familiarize themselves with the local culture and customs, as well as the climate, to ensure a smooth transition into their new home," explained one expat living in Suwon, Korea.
