Tickly Fish Therapy at Suan Lum Night Bazaar

After a busy day walking, a fish massage wasn't necessarily going to rub away the aches and pains, but a dip in the water would help refresh my feet. Linh had already given a go at fish therapy in Singapore in September, so I had to try it out too.


After washing my feet in a separate basin, I then took a seat over a tank of doctor fish and began a 15 minute feet session. Well, I'm not a massive fan of foot massages generally, and having particularly ticklish feet, I couldn't leave them at the mercy of the fish for more than a few minutes at a time!


Call me a p****, but I admit it, I failed to put on a manly front and bear the unbearably tickly sensation that grew in intensity, the longer my feet were in the water and the more fish there were, biting away at my skin. Look, even when out of the water, this little fella refused to let go of my heel!


For 15 minutes, it cost 150 THB (£2.85). In terms of finding a fish spa, we visited one at the Suan Lum Night Bazaar, but they seemed to be almost every where that tourists go in Bangkok and also Siem Reap in Cambodia as well as in a few spots in Singapore and Malaysia.
