Boryeong is a city in South Korea that has it all: mountains, beaches and not to mention wild and crazy inhabitants. Boryeong Mud Festival takes place every year in July on Daecheon swimming beach and is said to gather over 32 000 tourists, both foreign and local.

This is no common mud, but rather the type of medicinal material you probably have seen being sold on beaches. So this is not just a “dirty” way to burn up some energy, but it has a therapeutic effect as well. And whenever you get tired of having it on you, simply take a refreshing bath and then start over.



Boryeong Mud Festival in South Korea features a great variety of events, such as mud wrestling, photography competitions, mud fireworks fantasy and mud sliding. The atmosphere there these days can get very intense so be sure to prepare yourself for entertainment and complete relaxation.

In case you are planning to attend this festival next year, here is a bit more information on its origins and history and a place to start searching for accommodation.
