Cat Village Houtong, Ruifang

3.3
Built on the ruins of a deserted mining town thanks to the efforts of a team of volunteer workers, Cat Village Houtong now serves as a mini cat city, visited by many cat lovers. As the idea developed over the years, villagers started to construct cat decorations, sculptures, and even a bridge with a catwalk for the cats to come and greet you at the train station. Admire cat paintings, murals, and of course hundreds of real-life cats waiting to be petted. Find refreshments in the numerous cafes and shop for cat souvenirs, then relax by the pristine green river, accessible by a staircase. Put Cat Village Houtong into our New Taipei vacation builder site to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in New Taipei.

  • There are a lot of people to come to the city, not too afraid of people. This time to visit the child just want to take a leisurely walk, did not think that the child has fun with the child, like to see the beautiful mit. In addition to the dragonfly, you can also visit nearby, and the visitor center can also learn about the history of the pit. There are also small shops can take a break, there are large areas of grass outside to let children run.
