For anybody who is afraid of reptiles, this cafe is the perfect place to go. This cafe at Phnom Penh, in Cambodia, is the first reptile-themed cafe where the customers can go to in order to know the reptiles better. The cafe also allows one to play with pythons while sipping coffee and relaxing. In today's age, dog cafe's and cat cafe's are quite popular, but a reptile cafe has been heard of for the first time. Taking a break from all the mainstream cafes, Chea Raty came up with an innovative idea to launch a business that defines the reputation of the lizards and snakes and convinces the people disliking the reptiles that they are wrong! The cafe is quite popular and customers quite often come in and sip on their lattes while petting the animals.

As per reports, the walls of the cafe are lined up with glass tanks containing snakes of various lengths and colours. Although many have been spotted looking very hesitantly towards the reptiles, a few who are actually bolder just go ahead and embrace these creatures. The cafe does not have an entry fee and so the visitors can order a coffee and then request a sit--down with a reptile from one of the tanks. the cafe has been lauded by many of the customers for its innovative selling point. But, a few critics have also stated that the reptiles belong in the forests and not in the cafe. All the reptiles have been imported from Thailand and although business is slow because of the fear of the reptiles, the women in the area are giving the cafe an unexpected boost, as they happily put the snakes around their necks, and take selfies. After the reptile cafe being started in Cambodia, many businessmen have also decided to imitate and come up with such innovative ideas in order to attract customers.
