Ministry of Land, Transport, and Maritime Affairs sponsors "Mudflats Ecology Holiday" competition.

This is a welcome change, although the cynic in me says its just a PR stunt. The MLTM, which was created after Lee Myung Bak abolished the former Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (MOMAF), is sponsoring a contest to try and promote Korea's numerous mudflats as tourist destinations. This is certainly better than the Korean government's previous penchant for than filling them to make more rice paddies in a country that has long been self-sufficient in rice production. Still, making a tourist destination out of mud is a pretty tall order. Would you want to hang out here for your vacation? I suppose you could do a spa-type thing...
