Manila Ocean Park: On Meeting Doctor Fish

Call me weird and a bit crazy but I find myself missing those tiny swimming doctors nibbling at my feet.  I am of course talking about Manila Ocean Park’s Fish Spa attraction.  If you have been there and experienced this cool fish spa thingy, then you get what I mean.

Anyway, the first time I tried it was in July of 2009 with my boyfriend and his best bud.  I was kind of hesitant in the beginning to dip my feet into the water thinking that it might hurt.  But then, with a spoonful of courage, I did it and surprisingly liked it!

While on my 2nd Philippine vacation in March 2010, I made sure to return.  This time, with my younger brother, my sissy-in-law and a common friend.  Before leaving ending the tour, all four allowed our feet to be attacked by the fish doctors!  Tickly but refreshing and definitely addictive!  Will definitely return for the third and not the last time.  In 2014, maybe?

There goes my feet surrounded with the big ones!  Uh-oh!

And did you know that you can actually proceed directly to Manila Ocean Park’s Fish Spa section without the need to pay the entrance fee of Php400?  Oh yes.  You can!  If you are only up for the doctor fish experience, then all you need to do is to pay for the Php120 Fish Spa fee and you’re all set for the 20-minute fish spa treatment.  Cool, yeah?

How about you?  How many times have you toured the entire Manila Ocean Park?  What are your favorite attractions?  Have you tried the Doctor Fish attraction?
