Whacky Festivals of Asia

If classic isn’t of interest,  there is a plethora or weird and whacky celebrations to join or just photograph, because otherwise no one is going to believe you. 

South Korea’s Boryeong Mud Festival has grown to an excess of 2.2 million visitors since its inception in 1998. While originally conceived as a marketing vehicle for Boryeong mud cosmetics, the two-week event has become popular Koreans and foreigners alike for its fun-filled, skin-friendly activities.

India’s Tiger Festival sees people dressing up and using elaborate body paint to transform themselves into tigers.  The ‘tigers’ then dance, and the best performer is selected out of hundreds of participants.

Thailand’s Monkey Buffet Festival is held annually in Lopburi, Thailand. Fruits and vegetables are given to more than 2,000 monkeys to thank them for attracting tourists throughout the year.
