If you love the firey warmth of a wintery bonfire night, you’ll surely love the Jeju Fire Festival, celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. The festival is held to pray for a good harvest and good health in the new year, and there’s no better way to do that than with a giant bonfire on a mountain and fireworks!

The four-day festival has been running from Thursday 2 March this year, and ends tomorrow. There’s a huge range of hands-on events, displays and shows to enjoy. There are even some special events for foreigners, and the event has an all-English version of its website to welcome non-Korean visitors.
Entry to the festival is free, but prepare to deal with crowds, as an average 150,000 people attend over the four days.
