Two words: Too adorable. Who could resist dining in a café with some beaming alpacas strolling past you now and then while they check on their patrons? Get the ultimate wefie by luring them with carrots (provided by the owner) – it’s not difficult as the animals are so friendly. The café serves rather pricey western cuisine, but you really are there for the alpacas. Getting there can be a challenge as it’s quite out-of-the-way, so the fastest way would be to get a cab or Uber ride. Do take care of your belongings - you wouldn’t want the alpacas chewing on your new bag!
