Mud glorious mud - 29 Jul 2014
Every year, hordes of people flock to Daecheon beach in South Korea to wallow in the mud.

They are here for the Boryeong Mud Festival, an event that began in 1998 to promote the material’s use in skin products. It has since become a huge, rollicking affair attracting tourists from all over the world.
