Every year, Daecheon beach in Boryeong, South Korea, plays host to millions from around the world who seek a break from their daily routine and just want to have pure fun.

The purported benefits of a good soak in the mud are most likely not the reason most people head to this beach. There's mud wrestling, mud sliding and swimming in, you guessed it, mud.

If you wanted a reason to get down and, this is the place to do it!
