Houtong Cat Village, also known as Taiwan’s cat mecca, is a former mining village sits in the mountains of eastern Taipei. Houtong Cat Village is famous for its dozens of friendly street cats roaming around the village; a must go places for cat lovers. Houtong used to be a mining town with rich, well-preserved railway culture and old mines. I’m not sure since when, but this village became a well-known cat village throughout the entire Taiwan.
