Eaten by Fish: Sivas, Turkey
The good news: The fish nibbling on your feet don't have teeth. The bad news: There are fish nibbling on your feet. Of course, this probably won't be bad news to spa-goers concerned with the unkempt state of their well-traveled hoofs. (Ichthyophobiacs, however, should stay out of the water.) In need of a pedicure? Stick your feet in some "doctor fish"-infested water, sit back and relax as hundreds of tiny mouths consume the dead skin off your dogs. This treatment originated in outdoor Turkish pools, but spas offering doctor fish pedicures can be found around the world, including in the United States. For an authentic doctor fish experience, travel to Sivas, Turkey, where travelers can literally swim with the doctor fish in natural thermal pools.
