The Best Animal Cafes in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Updated: 15 January 2018
In Vietnam, a booming economy has led to a flourishing middle class and younger generations with money to spend. Globalization has touched the farthest reaching corners of the country, changing landscapes and creating a love for all things western. In Ho Chi Minh City there’s something new appearing – cat friendly joints, dog dens, and reptilian hangouts. These are Saigon’s best pet cafes.

Pet Me

Located in Thao Dien, one of Saigon’s, most western neighborhoods, Pet Me is a cross between a cafe and a zoo. The outdoor space offers more than just coffee, they host live music and painting nights as well. Home to a number of large tropical birds, tortoises, reptiles and fluffy pups, Pet Me is a great place to take the kids.

ICHI Cat Cafe

ICHI Cate Cafe is home to a large group of friendly felines. Located just north of Tan Dinh market, this clean one story venture makes a nice, cheap, off the tourist trail excursion. The cats are well fed (plump) and the coffee isn’t bad. With only a 40,000 VND entrance fee, ICHI is a pleasant afternoon experience.

Ailu Cat House Cafe

A mellow joint dropped into one of Saigon’s most coffee-centric neighborhoods, Ailu has some of the most impressive felines in the city. Exotic Burmese or Persian cats are the reason to visit. The soft music and tasty coffee are the reasons to stay a while.

Babo Cafe

For those with a love of the scaly and spiny, there’s no place better than Babo Cafe. This one of a kind cafe is crawling with cold blooded critters from iguanas and lizards to snakes and frogs. While they may not be excited to have their bellies rubbed, they are interesting to observe. This is one pet cafe for the more adventurous coffee drinkers out there.
