There's Something Fishy Going On at Yas Waterworld
Fancy a fishy spa day in Abu Dhabi? Yas Waterworld now has the Pedi Pond by Fisho that houses more than 13,000 garra rufa fish (also know as 'doctor fish' in its tank at all times). The toe-tickling experience involves the fish nibbling the dead skin off your feet to leave them feeling soft and smooth.
The park's General Manager Mark Oswald, said, "Few people know that the Garra Rufa treatment is native to this part of the world with the fish originally coming from Turkey, Iraq and Syria. It’s a real fun experience – and could be quite funny as the nibbling fish can leave you with a tickling sensation.”
You can even get a snapshot of your initial reaction to dipping your feet into the tank for the first time!
INFO: The Pedi Pond costs Dhs55 for adults or Dhs40 for children for a 10-minute session, Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi.
