Of the numerous festivals in Korea, it is the Boryeong Mud Festival that probably attracts the largest number of international visitors. And understandably so. After all, it combines plenty of beach time with the thrill of rolling around in mass amounts of mud. Not only is the mineral-rich mud good for your skin, the actual act of playing in it reinvigorates a sense of inner sense of youth.
The action-packed extravaganza at Daecheon Beach debuted in 1996. Since then, it has attracted around 1.5 million visitors each year, including 80,000 international travelers eager to spread mud all over each other, engage in mud fights, mud sliding, wrestle in the the mud and participate in various activities. Here are the most interesting photos from festival which we chose for you.
