Tourist treats taxi driver to a day at theme park

(FOX News) - An Indian taxi driver based in Abu Dhabi had the ride of his life thanks to a generous passenger.

Liam Murphy, an engineer from Cork, Ireland, was visiting the United Arab Emirates for business when he decided to spend a day at the Ferrari World theme park.

During the two hour drive from Dubai, Murphy began speaking with his Indian-born driver, Shakiha, and learned that he had never been able to afford to go inside the park despite having lived abroad for 14 years, reports Metro UK. Instead, he usually waited outside for a few hours until his passengers returned.

Instead of letting Shakiha wait outside, Murphy decided to treat his driver to day at the park, shelling out $95 for a ticket.
