Cute pet cafes in Bangkok


As 2020 hasn’t been the kindest to us humans, we’ll need to find a way to relieve that stress and keep moving forward. And for a lot of folks, that means spending time with animals.

Although BKK’s city lifestyle prevents many of us from getting our own pets, we’re lucky enough to live in the age of pet cafes. Here are 7 adorable pet cafes in Bangkok to spend your time with cute critters.

Once inside, you’ll be greeted with the friendly dogs with names like Nana, Ari, and Asok. If these names sound familiar to you, it’s because the doggos here are named after Bangkok’s BTS stations, which is super cute.
