Boryeong Mud Festival: More Than the Usual Holiday Destination

Boryeong Mud Festival: More Than the Usual Holiday Destination

Author: Paul Selibio

Reminisce the times when you used to play with your friends at the beach, running on the shore with mud on your feet and splatters of it across your face? Those were fun times. But what made that moment truly memorable were the friends that ran around with you on the shore; and how you wish now, that you can do it all over again.

Mud packs, mud fights, mud prison, mud wrestling, and mud obstacle course – these are just some of the fun-filled thrills that The Boryeong Mud Festival offers. It’s that time of the year again in Korea when mud practically takes on the limelight and becomes more than just the usual nuisance that clings on your shoes during the rainy season. In Daecheon beach, where the Boryeong Mud Festival has been celebrated for many years now, mud is a prized attraction.

Here are several reasons why the Boryeong Mud Festival is more than just your usual holiday destination.

Mud Games

Mud can be found everywhere during the Boryeong Festival - on the ground, on your feet, and even on your face. There’s plenty of mud to splash around. You will see people hurling mud on each other or launching them like mud rockets straight at one another. This is the perfect destination for people who want to recall their youth, remember the happy times they spent with their friends, or just experience a new kind of adventure.

There are plenty of mud games during the Boryeong Mud Festival: mud slides, mud dance shows, and mud wrestling are attractions that never fail to impress family and friends. The Boryeong Mud Festival is really a perfect chance for you to bond well with friends and family, or meet new friends along the way.

Mud Camps

Fun is not the only thing you will experience at the Boryeong Mud Festival. You will also learn first-hand a number of things, such as how to survive a mud boot camp to taking a run on a few mud military training exercises; you will also discover a few tricks on how to deal with getting locked up in a make-shift mud prison.

Morning mud marathons start off your Boryeong Mud Festival adventure. Be sure to bring extra clothes, but don’t make the mistake of buying new ones just for the activity. You’ll end up soiling them to waste.

Mud Skin Crème

Many people are claiming that mud on this part of the world possesses some beauty-enhancing properties that tighten skin, and leave it looking young. But don’t leave the mud on your face for too long. Remember to rinse it off. Whatever the reason, walking around town with mud on your face or forehead may still look a bit strange, not to mention unhygienic.


Evenings in Boryeong are met by a grand display of fireworks and lively parties. See bands perform, and watch lively dancers awe you with their performances. You will also experience a bite of Korea’s traditional dishes, but not to be outdone are Western favorites that never fail tickling the palate wherever in the world they are served. There’s plenty of food and drinks to go around, so take your pick and eat to your heart’s content.

These are just a few things to expect from the Boryeong Mud Festival. But for those who really want to take part of this adventure, don’t wait too long. For 2008, the Boryeong Festival will take place on July 12 to July 20; plenty of time to prepare for unending heaps of fun when you get there.
