War-torn Kabul is home to a new $5 million indoor water park that spans over 2,300-square-meters and giving employment to 70 people. This facility can hold over 1,000 customers and if swimming isn’t your thing, try out the restaurant, whirlpool, sauna or play area for children.

But in such a conservative region, it comes as no surprise that women aren’t allowed in this facility. Sorry, ladies, this one is just for the men. And girls up to aged 10. This separation of the sexes might sound discriminatory in our day and age, but it might just be a genius way of getting men to take the kids out of the house for the day.
