  • Love cats? This is a must see! Free entry (but you should leave a donation). You don't get long inside (we stayed for about 15 minutes) as it's quite popular and there is always a queue. Was amazing!
  • You must come if you're a cat lover! My Lonely Planet guidebook said that the shelter houses 40 cats, but there were only about 20 when I visited. Some of the cats were in the cages, and some were out and about. Most of them were pretty mean and vicious though; if you try to pet them they might run away or bite you. Some of them were pretty nice. Admission is free but they welcome donations.
