Every year, this little town 190 km southwest of Seoul, South Korea, becomes a tourist hot spot.

Attracting about 2 to 3 million domestic and international visitors, the Boryeong Mud Festival at Daecheon beach is an annual event that aims to encourage the use of mud for cosmetic skincare and promote tourism in the region.

The festival runs from July 19-28, but it is most famous for its final weekend.
