Kanna buffalo cafe
While there are many cafes in Thailand that house four-legged animals like corgis, cats, foxes, and raccoons, never before has there been one with horns, hooves, and a sound that goes “moo”.
At Kanna, a cafe by the fields, visitors can sip and snack away in a natural, elegant setting filled with many IG-worthy spots; the site also happens to be teeming with young and old buffaloes looking for grass and pats.

A different type of animal cafe
Hedgehogs and meerkats are cool, but if you want something more different, then head over to Kanna for some water buffalo playtime. If you don’t know, the buffaloes have been at the heart of Thai culture for as long as one can remember giving us the famous Thai rice every year.
