In the Philippines, you can go to a mermaid academy and learn to swim like one
Obviously, ‘mermaiding’ or ‘mermaning’ isn’t as much of a niche lifestyle as we thought. A school for mermaid-wannabes actually exists out here in Southeast Asia to make mermaiding accessible to the masses and allow anyone to strap on a mermaid tail and learn to sashay through large water bodies.
Classes are conducted anywhere from Boracay’s White Beach to wild lakes to hotel swimming pools, and you can even choose to scuba dive, snorkel or take on a mermaid fitness class that promises to shed inches off your waist. It still sounds a bit ridiculous to us at the end of the day, but to each his own, we guess.
