Boryeong Mud Festival - Must see and do in Korea

Boryeong Mud Festival that takes place every summer in Korea is definitely worth a visit. The mud in the region is said to have healing properties. And it's true, because having fun is good for you and you will have a lot of fun there. The next festival is happening between 18th July 2014 and 27th July 2014.

Boryeong (보령시) is a city on the west coast of Korea. The festival is located in Daecheon (대천동), which is a small township near the city center. Getting to Boryeong is very easy, there's a train from Seoul all the way there (Yongsan station, approx two and half hours).



When you get to Boryeong, you need to take a bus to Daecheon. It stops at the train station. Remember to say: "Beach-e", when you want to go to the beach. That's how you pronounce beach in Korea ;)

I visited the festival in 2011 and it was simply awesome. Everything was mud and mud is fun. Mud slides, pools, showers. There were plenty of games that will hep you make friends very quickly. Some of the games ended up in a mud lynch.I quickly learned that the most important thing when you lose is to cover you ears!




I've been to the festival twice the same year. Both days were equally fun. Most of the visitors were young Koreans and travellers. Some other travellers a I met said it was not as much fun during the weekend. I guess it gets a bit crowded (with sexy people though :)). I also made a lot of new friends, even though there were some funny misunderstandings between us, because they did not really speak English and I of course speak zero Korean. One moment totally cracked me up, when one of the guys offered me to go on a slide with his girlfriend by saying: "Do you want to enjoy with her?"

Here's some more info about the festival:

  2. Every young boys pastime. Playing in mud and sand is why I'm a miner. Looks like fun therapy.
