Fish Massage

4 comments

All over Khaosan Road there are people trying to push things on you and get you to buy things; tuk tuk rides, suits, thai massage, little wooden frogs, clothes, random gadgets, fish massage, etc. We got suckered into all of them at one point or another, the last being the "fish massage".

We'd seen other people doing it, and really, it just looked too bizarre to not try. It works by dipping your feet into a fish tank full of Garra Rufa (??), also known as doctor fish, at which point the fish flock to you and nibble the dead skin off your feet.

Here's a short video from when we first dropped our feet in the tank :)

If I had to describe how it felt, I'd say it was a combination of getting your feet tickled + the pins and needles you get when your feet fall asleep.
