One of the stranger things we did in Thailand was get a fish pedicure. I had heard about these places where fish nibbled on your feet, and I always thought it sounded strange, but we figured it'd be fun to try while on our holiday.
Before putting our feet anywhere near the fish, the employees washed/scrubbed our feet five times. Five times! My feet have never been so clean. They put bandaids over some scrapes on my toes (from some coral), and then we were good to go. I've read that these "doctor fish" spas are illegal in most US states, because the practice is considered unsanitary. But I felt okay about it after I saw how clean my feet were!
|That big fish's bites kind of hurt!|
Zack and I didn't notice any difference in the smoothness or beauty of our feet after the treatment, even though the fish supposedly slough off dead skin. I think it's more of a gimmick. I probably wouldn't do it again, but it was definitely fun to try once!
|The fish apparently liked Zack's scaly feet! :)|
