Boryeong Mud Festival is one of Famous festival of Korea. also This is familiar with foreigner.
Held in July year, it is a unique amusement and spectacle for internal and external tourists as a festival designated by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism since 1998.
Location is Daecheon Beach which is top of west sea beach in Korea.
Seoul to Daecheon will be taken about 2 hrs 30 minutes and you can take train or bus.
If you want take train, you need to get a Seoul Train Station(Subway Num 1, 4), If you want take bus, you need to get a Nambu Bus Terminal(Subway Num3). When you arrive at Daecheon, you can take bus to Daecheon beach.
I hope enjoy this festival.
Daecheon beach is not far from Seoul. I think you can set up one day plan.
