A backpacker recently made a horrifying discovery in her bathroom just minutes after taking a shower in there - and let's just say, you might want to cover your eyes from this one.

Now, when you're on vacation, all you want to do is take some time out from the real world and relax.

But what happens when your safe space suddenly becomes infested with thousands of crawling bugs?

Well, one woman documented her experience in a hotel bathroom in Southeast Asia after coming into contact with a horrifying sight just minutes after getting out of the shower.

Taking to TikTok, backpacker Marissa Mcgarr shared a 28-second clip, giving fans an insight into one of her worst nightmares.

"I just took a shower 20 minutes ago and there wasn't a single thing in the bathroom or anything, like nothing out of the normal," Mcgarr said.

Check out Marissa's video below:

She then went on to explain that she went to lay on her bed for a little bit and then returned to the bathroom to brush her hair and found the room literally covered in what she believed to be ants.

"Oh my god," she exclaimed as she showed her followers the insects crawling all over the walls, sink, and ceiling.

"What would you do in this situation be honest," she captioned the clip, which has been viewed over 2.1 million times since it went up on March 7.

The post also received thousands of comments, with many left repulsed at the sight of the creepy crawlies.

"I would simply...die," read the most liked comment on the video, while someone else asked: "Are you whispering so the ants don't hear you?"

A third also suggested that maybe they weren't ants at all: "Ants usually travel in a line. Are you sure they weren't baby spiders?"

And this user seemed to agree writing: "That’s a lot of baby spiders. Congrats!"

"That's ... worse then I imagined lol," wrote another TikToker, as others offered some advice like getting a vacuum or mixing vinegar and hot water in a spray bottle to take care of the pesky insects interrupting her vacation.

Speaking to PEOPLE, Mcgarr said that she went to go and get some help when she realized that they weren't just going to go away.

"After that I went looking for someone that could help me," Mcgarr recalled. "It was midnight, so not many people were up or not in their rooms, but I found one guy. He didn't speak English, and I don't speak Vietnamese so after realizing I had no idea how to describe this to him without just showing him, he was definitely concerned [about] why I was trying to drag him into my room in the middle of the night."

"Finally, after saying 'help help' and dragging him into my room, he understood," she said.

Although Mcgarr travels full-time, she told the outlet that she "never experienced anything like this" and while the worker "used the shower to try and spray them down, which got rid of the masses... they kept coming."

"He ended up just giving me keys to go and stay in a different room for the night because it was like 1 AM at this point," Mcgarr added. "The next morning, he said they were gone, and I could go back into my room. I was very hesitant about it, but there was not a single ant."
