The wonderful, wacky world of animal cafes seems to never stop evolving, especially in Shenzhen. A new pig cafe named 猪廊咖啡馆 (Zhulang Kafei Guan, roughly translated to ‘pig lounge coffee shop’) has opened in Luohu district, housing 12 of the cuddly creatures.

All the pigs in the store are fed freshly cooked vegetables, which you can even feed them!

The smart little pigs can go up and down the stairs by themselves (and can even go to the market!).

Although the pigs have been vaccinated (and presumably don’t have African swine fever), guests must wash their hands before entering as an added precaution. On Dianping, a ‘cuddle’ package for one person plus a drink is currently priced at RMB78. 

Open daily, 10am-10pm. Zhulang Kafei Guan
