Period: July 16 to July 24, 2011 (9days)
Place: Daecheon Beach
Official Website: http://www.mudfestival.or.kr
The website says these are the number to contact for interpretation services. I don't know if it works though. I remember my friend tried to use it but she didn't get any answer or something. That was last year though so it might work this time. hahaha.
There are many groups organizing trips going to the festival. I am not sure if it's a good idea to go with people you don't know but some of my friends did and they said it was fun and way cheaper^^. Going to Boryeong is a bit hard during the season since everything, train, bus, hotels, motels, minbaks etc are already booked. In my case I will be going with my friends who also went there last year. Anyway, here are some groups I know organizing the trip. I don't know anyone from these groups but I just saw it posted on my Facebook wall so might as well share.
