The Best and The Cutest Animal Cafes in South Korea

If you want to have some cuddle time with the “good boys”, you should head your way to Bau House. Bau House is home to around 20 resident dogs that are very welcoming and so much ready to play with customers. Although they are resident dogs, they are also willing to play and socialize with other furry friends (as long as they pass a list of qualifications). When you enter, you’ll be given a directory stating the dogs’ names, ages, and breeds. Entering a cafe and being welcomed with so many cute fur babies is a chance you should not miss!

Raccoons! Yes, Blind Alley has raccoons as its resident animal. These cute “furballs” are not alone though. You can also find pigs and a corgi inside. Upon entering, you’ll be given some instructions on how you can interact with these animals and how to handle them. Admission to play with the raccoons is free, if you purchase an item to the cafe’s menu. Just a piece of advice it is recommended to visit this cafe towards the evening since Raccoons are nocturnal animals.

For a more unique animal cafe, visit The Galapagos. Inside, you’ll find a tortoise, bearded dragons, and sugar gliders. This cafe, however, doesn’t encourage (but is allowed) customers to touch the animals, which I personally think is good as the animals can get really stressed. And for this reason, the ambiance of the cafe will make you want to just enjoy observing the animals roam around. The open interior, high ceilings, and plenty of plants are just relaxing to the eyes. The cafe also has really good coffee which added to your unique experience.

And that’s our list of the best and the cutest animal cafes in South Korea. With the cuteness of these animals, you may find it difficult to choose which one you should go to first. So before you head your way to Korea, plan carefully ahead for a fluffy adventure! Have you been to any of these cafes? Do you want to visit just one from the list above?
