Yay! Boryeong Mud Festival!
It was definitely an experience I wouldn’t forget. The mud definitely had good effect on the skin. The people were fun and willing to participate in the activities.
This trip was one for the books because of this festival!
We entered the festival area today. The crowd is considerably less than the weekend crowd.
The line to the activities were shorter. I wonder, though, why most of the activities are violent in nature?
Maybe it’s the Korean way of letting of steam. But, what is also important to notice is that everyone are friends in the end.
I was afraid to try the activities because I might go game face on them. My competitive spirit might not distinguish playtime from a tournament.
One of the fun things to experience in the festival is a face paint using colored mud.
You let the ahjummas run wild with their designs!
Walking along the low tide shore this morning and we are treated to a foggy delight. The crowd has definitely subsided and the working people are, I suppose, already at work.
We are left with students on summer break enjoying their much needed rest and relaxation (like me). And families enjoying bonding time.
Taken at: Central Mud Area in Boryeong, South Korea
From Seoul, I went to Boryeong to join in the Boryeong Mud Festival. And since it was the weekend, the place was packed! We didn’t go inside the mud area because (1) we arrived at around 2 PM and (2) there were really a lot of people.
It was a fun experience and a different kind of celebration that is by the beach!
We haven’t been to the mud area yet but there were free mud outside so we decided to ‘paint’ ourselves!
Now on the beach while listening to live performances. It’s like the Korean spring break party with sone foreigners in between.
And we have arrived in Daecheon Beach!
The festival is starting and we can’t wait to join them!
