I didn't know what to expect. My friend Brandi went first and I knew from her face it was going to feel weird. I'm not really ticklish on my feet, but when the fish first started biting/sucking on them it felt like little jolts of electricity running up my legs. I got used to it after about 30 seconds and was able to relax more. Nick was skeptical to try it, but I convinced him since it was so cheap. I think our faces were hilarious.
My feet felt softer when I pulled them out, but it definitely didn't work as well as a good foot scrub at the local market behind my apartment here in China. It was a fun experience though. We had so many people staring as they walked by. One funny Russian man who was missing a hand even joked with Nick that those fish were how he had lost his hand.
I am glad I got to check this off my list of things to do in Thailand.
