Taken at: Daecheon Beach in Boryeong, South Korea

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!


Fun Times

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. 

What You See, What You Get

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!

6D5N South Korea Itinerary

It’s gonna be a summer in Korea. Most Filipinos do not go to Korea during the summer because we experience it the whole year round.

What brings me to Korea this time of year? Boryeong Mud Festival! But, as we were too late in planning, most hotels / resorts along Daecheon Beach have already been booked. Fortunately, we found a hotel that still has room for 2 nights. So, before moving to Boryeong, I’ll be in Seoul for the first 3 nights.

I was happy when I learned that one leg of the FIVB World Grand Prix will be hosted in Korea. I made it a point to ensure that I will be able to watch one day. Here’s to hoping that I will be able to secure tickets!

I am also keen on hiking the Seoul City Wall¬†for the view of Seoul. But that isn’t final yet because I am considering the weather. Do I really want to hike in the middle of summer?

I’m looking forward to an eventful summer! And I am hoping to have a great experience in the festival.
