Getting a fish pedicure in Siem Reap, Cambodia.

The fish in Cambodia hate me about now.

Getting a fish pedicure in Siem Reap, Cambodia.

While in Siem Reap I had the privilege of traveling with Corey on the date of his one year travel anniversary!

We began the day’s celebration by waking up ridiculously early to watch the sun rise over Angkor Wat… Watching the colorful sky illuminate the Khmer temples was well worth the early start time, but afterwards we went back to our hotel and went back asleep for a few more hours…

After resting up we went back out to explore more temples then spent the rest of the afternoon relaxing by the pool, ordering up some cocktails, eating some fried fish fingers…

That night, we decided to treat ourselves to a fish pedicure in Siem Reap. Fish spas were set up all over the place in and around pub street: giant tanks filled with little fish who were hungry to nibble the dead skin on your feet. Getting one was only $3 for 30 minutes and came with a free beer, so…why not?

It was…an interesting experience…to say the least. As the fish bit my skin it tickled a lot and every once in a while I’d feel a harder bite and kick the fish away and then feel bad about kicking the fish away. They seemed to like Corey’s feet way more than they liked mine so I didn’t get as many and they missed a few spots. I’m not quite sure whether that is a good thing or a bad thing…

Will I ever get a fish pedicure again? That, I’m not sure. (I’m all about getting a regular pedicure though.)

After our feet got fishified we headed to this gay bar called Linga. What I love most about cocktails here in Cambodia is that they are mostly made with real and fresh fruit juice. I got one made with passion fruit juice, which was delicious, but so hard to drink because I kept sucking seeds through the straw.

And then we found another Siem Reap bar and got more to drink… (No, not Angkor What? Bar.)

Let’s just say it was quite a night.

Happy one year of traveling, Corey!

    Ugh, I had no desire to do the fish thing when I was there. I’m not a big fan of having my feet touched, so the idea of a bunch of fish nibbling at my feet….no thanks.

    I want someone to engineer a straw that has a mesh bit covering the end that goes in the cup, because I am constantly sucking lemon seeds into my straw and then having to awkwardly spit them out.

    Indeed the Waldorf and Statler box is the highlight of these pictures. Is it a music box or what?
