Inspirock Rating:
3.8/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web
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. Plan to see Cat Village Houtong and other attractions that appeal to you using our Xinbei vacation planner.

  • 其實這邊整理不錯,天橋真得滿用心。而且推出其他地方沒有的貓咪產品,我個人覺得很可愛。附近的礦坑可以坐超級可愛的小火車。 
  • 來侯硐貓村的最大目的就是這些可愛的貓咪們,他們不怕生,而且可以讓你摸。車站附近商家林立,也隨處可見貓咪溜達,還有很多有關貓咪的商品。 
  • You can find a store specializing in pineapple cakes form of cat. In addition, some cat-themed signs for food stalls. Don't forget to reach inside the visitor center to fill his book of stamps with cat-themed stamps! (By the way, a kit of tourist who goes to Taiwan must include a booklet of stamps collection.) Remember that the history of the town not only relies on cats. Houtong offers you multiple opportunities to learn about the heyday of their years of mining coal under the Ruisan Mining Company.

  • So many cats! It was a great experience. I am definitely going back there in the summer
  • Interesting place, if you are a cat lover you'll love it. Lots of cats here, whoever came up with the idea for this place is a genius.
  • Cat Village is so fun! You get to see hundreds of cats across the whole place while trekking. You can take the train here and the journey is very fun and scenic too!
  • You can snap some very nice pictures in this tiny train station town. There's a stairway to do down to the river below if you're adventurous enough.
  • Cute place with a country quiet feel. Not quite as many cats as I expected.
