South Korea's tailor-made holiday for fireworks

17th May 2013

South Korea can promise your holiday will go off with a bang - at this year's Pohang International Fireworks Festival.

Pohang's sparkling procession of pyrotechnics draws fans of firework displays on family holidays from all over the globe.

The modest industrial town on South Korea's eastern coast provides one of the summer's most eagerly anticipated festivals and events in the Far East.

The host nation faces professional competition from China, Italy and Poland as firework display experts go head-to-head for the international prize.

The array of cutting-edge fireworks promises to be the biggest, baddest and most innovative yet.

But the festival isn't just about pyrotechnics.

It also promises activities no less sparkling to keep even the most energetic visitor busy.

Watersports, theatre productions, traditional song and dance performances and even a national badminton tournament are all available during the nine days.

The South Korean Marine Corps and Coast Guard will display their wares and there's also a sand sculpture exhibition to complement the many attractions Pohang has all year round.

These include fishing, snorkelling, the Jukdo seafood market, the Mount Naeyeon valley temple, waterfalls and the Culture & Arts Centre exhibitions.

Dates for the festival are as yet unconfirmed, but are provisionally booked in for July 27-August 24.
