This is the most precious experience that I had in South Korea.

Boryeong Mud Festival, is one of the best attraction in South Korea. Annually it attracts many international tourists.

The mud is dug up near Boryeong, trucked to the Daecheon beach area, and dumped at a 'Mud Experience Land'.The mud is considered rich in minerals and used to manufacture cosmetics.

All guys and girls wear their swim suits but instead of swimming in the sea they swim in the mud. Everyone there put the mud all over their bodies.  Most interesting was the colouring of the mud! Beside providing the the mud all around, organisers also include concerts and mud related games and activities. It was so amazing!

If you got a chance visit South Korea in the summer, please do not miss this festival.
