We have all enjoyed the rise in pet-inclusive activities in Hong Kong in recent years, and have all become familiar with our pet-inclusive parks, restaurants, glamping and hotel staycation options. But there are still some novel pet-inclusive activities popping up on the market that you might not be aware of… here are five new ways to spend the day with your pup.
With the expansion of cycles paths out in New Territories, there are bike rental shops at cycling hot spots such as Tai Mei Tuk, Tseung Kwan O and beyond that allow pet owners to rent 4-wheel bikes to explore the neighbourhood on wheels. Prices will vary depending on location, but it sure makes for a fun and alternative way to explore with the dog!
If you fancy taking your adventures to the sea, certain rental shops apply the same rules to hiring kayaks and paddle boards!
Check these out here!
Inflatable Water Park
Happy Park is a doggie water park in Yuen Long that allows both dog and owner to get into the water and cool off in the summer heat. The inflatable park comes with a built-in obstacle course and slide, and resides on a large grassy allotment for the pups to enjoy. The space also offers catering and a villa to those who wish to rent out the space for parties.
