A café, restaurant, petting zoo, lotus farm, and an eco-tourism spot rolled into one.

Dubua Café offers a beautifully-planned site with sprawling gardens, lush lotus ponds, activity areas, and pockets for interaction with animals such as rabbits, ponies, chickens, and other domesticated animals.

Did I mention that entrance is FREE? I never thought it’d be possible.

We were wonderfully surprised at the minimalist beauty of the place. We have had our share of eco-tourism-inspired spots that combine nature, family activities, and food, but Dubua Café was another level. Their routes were planned for families to move about with bikes, pedal boats, and scooters you can use (again, for free) as you roam around the area.

You don’t need to worry about your restless feet or your kids being parched and starved from all the fun things they could do as food booths line the walkways, called “Kad Ban Kwai.” It’s an effort to generate income for the community by allowing locals to sell products. You can take a quick break with a delicious coconut ice cream cup, coffee, tea, pastry horns filled with cream, French macarons, fruit juices, pork barbecues, and more.

The food are at a good price point. Quaint seats are available outside to enjoy your snacks al fresco with a pretty little pot of orchid at the center.

It’s best to visit early to avoid large crowds and stay away from the harsh sun. Bring a hat and wear sunscreen as you’ll be spending the whole day out, and of course, never leave without extra clothes and water tumblers for the kids. Enjoy!
