Vietnam has majorly opened up its door, and ideas from all over the world have come flooding in. Namely dog and cat cafes! The first cat cafe in the world that every opened was in 1998 in Taipei, Taiwan. Originally it was just an idea for young city folk, to get some fluffy love, soon turned into one of the cities’ major tourist destinations. Cat cafes really took off when they ventured across the water into Japan in 2005. In most of the dwellings in Tokyo, it is prohibited to own pets. With people yearning for some feline companionship, more and more cafes opened across the city.
The dogs are very friendly, and within a seconds I had a giant husky intruding very impolitely into my personal space! On the second floor where you ordered drinks, there were the cats. These were mainly long haired while cats.

Pet Me cafe has everything from rabbits to snakes. To be honest I wasn’t a huge fan of all the cages. The owl and hedgehog looked particularly sad! On top of that, compared with the other establishments the drinks were on the pricey, though that’s Thảo Điền for you!
