5 Popular Animal Cafes In Bangkok To Visit For A Cuddly Time

There are many animal cafes in Bangkok and these are a few I’ve been to. Animal cafes are often a touchy topic, I recommend doing your own research and read more reviews online of the cafes before visiting. This article is what I experienced during my visit to these cafes.

In this Animal Cafes in Bangkok List:

1. Happy Bird’s Day

Happy Birds Day Bird Cafe - Animal Cafes in Bangkok

Beyond the typical cat and dog cafes, here you’ll find a varity of birds, from call ducks to chickens, alongside cuddly rabbits and guinea pigs. Visitors can hold these birds, with staff even fetching a duck or chicken for an interactive experience.

Do note that some of the birds may bite — I got nipped by bird that apparently loves the male gender and only bites females, and I also did see other visitors getting nipped by birds. The birds may also land on you, but if you’re uncomfortable, let the staff know, they are quick to get the birds off you!

The staff at Happy Bird’s Day seem to really love animals here, though I think the guinea pigs could do with a cleaner enclosure. Most of the birds also look really clean and healthy.

Opening hours: Weekdays 11am – 7pm, Weekends 11am – 8pm
Entrance fee: 350 THB, comes with bird feed, a complimentary drink, and a Polaroid picture
Address: Soi Sukhumvit 63, Phra Khanong Nuea, Watthana, Bangkok 10110, Thailand
Getting there: 15 minutes walk from nearest BTS station, Ekkamai; would recommend taking a taxi

2. Caturday Cat Cafe

Caturday Cat Cafe - Animal Cafes in Bangkok

If you’re a fan of short legged or flat-faced cats, you should definitely check out Caturday Cat Cafe. During your visit, most cats would likely be snoozing but the staff often entice interactions with visitors, or they may even placing a slumbering feline at your table.

Caturday Cat Cafe may be one of the most conveniently located animal cafes in Bangkok. It was the only cafe that did not require a long way from the train station or for us to take a taxi, which I really appreciated.

3. Dog in Town (Ekkamai)

Dog In Town Ekkamai - Animal Cafes Bangkok

The large dogs at Dog in Town are the main attraction here. However, as there is a limited number of dogs, which include a mix of Alaskan Malamutes to Corgis, the cafe can get crowded, making sustained interactions a bit challenging. However, the staff’s enthusiasm in capturing playful snapshots makes up for it.

The staff here seem to really know the dogs’ temperaments and the dogs were let out on a regular basis into the garden, and I also saw the staff taking a dog out for a run.

There are 2 branches, one in Ekkamai and another in Ari. We visited the Ekkamai branch as it was right opposite Happy Bird’s Day, so we could visit both cafes in 1 afternoon.

Opening hours: 11am – 8pm
Entrance fee: 350 THB, includes a drink
Address: 16, 1 Ekkamai 6 Alley, Khlong Tan Nuea, Watthana, Bangkok 10110, Thailand
Getting there: 15 minutes walk from nearest BTS station, Ekkamai; would recommend taking a taxi

4. Truelove At Neverland

Truelove at Neverland - Animal Cafes in Bangkok

Fluffy huskies are the stars at Truelove @ Neverland. Once of the highlights at this cafe is taking a group photo with the huskies and seeing them run home at the end of the session — it is really cute, yet majestic! The dogs here were really beautiful and clean looking, though a few of them looked exhausted, likely due to the heat.

Unlike other animal cafes, you cannot walk in at random times and there are 2 sessions per day. The cafe does not take reservations and operates on a first-come-first-serve basis, so I’d recommend going early.

Session 1:
11.30am – 1pm: Dining and “viewing” of huskies
1pm – 2pm: Interaction with dogs

Session 2:
3pm – 4pm: dining and “viewing” of huskies
4pm – 5pm: Interaction with dogs

Entrance fee: 500 THB, includes a drink and a bottle of water, CASH only
Address: 153 Soi Ari Samphan 2, แขวงพญาไท Phaya Thai, Bangkok 10400, Thailand
Getting there: 22 minute walk from nearest BTS station Ari, would recommend taking a taxi

5. Little Zoo Cafe

Little ZOO Cafe - Animal Cafes in Bangkok

Little Zoo Cafe brands itself as an ‘exotic animal cafe’, housing a variety of exotic species like meerkats, foxes and even a raccoon.

It was a good experience being able to interact closely with these animals; after all, where else are you able to hold a fennec fox and raccoon? However, this was also the only animal cafe that triggered some alarm bells when I visited. When I first visited a couple of years back, the adult foxes were kept in small cages and the raccoon looked grossly overweight. I would advise you to do your research before visiting.

Opening hours: 11am – 7pm
Entrance fee: 400 THB, includes a drink
Address: 486 On Nut Rd, Khwaeng Suan Luang, Suan Luang, Bangkok 10250, Thailand
Getting there: 20 minute walk from nearest BTS station, On Nut, would recommend taking a taxi
