Looking for fun date ideas for that young puppy love?
Check out these 5 spots in Hong Kong for things to do with your dog and date!
NAM SANG WAI
Nam Sang Wai is unlike anywhere else in Hong Kong, with open green, wooded walks and wetlands, attracting migratory birds from all over the world.
This unique spot is not only great for bird-watching, but also has several picturesque spots including Wedding Bridge - a man-made pier stretching out over the water, a teepee made of branches and even a unique man-powered mode of crossing the river.
Bring a pop-up tent and picnic basket for a fun day out with the dogs.

The Peak Circular Walk at night can be a romantic spot to admire the city lights with your paramour. Finish with a romantic meal at one of the dog-friendly restaurants - whether you’re craving Indian, Italian or International - Rajasthan Rifles, Fiamma or Peak Lookout are sure to make the occasion special.
Looking for a day date? The dog-friendly shopping mall, Peak Galleria, allows for some window-shopping with the pups in tow. If you fancy something outdoors, the Victoria Peak Gardens makes for a beautiful spot to stroll with the pups or enjoy a picnic.
End the date on a sweet note, by treating your significant other and the pups to some ice-cream from Gino’s Gelato.
Stanley is a great option for doggy dates whether you’re after a chill meal and drinks, al fresco, followed by a walk along the waterfront or a beach date at one of the neighbouring dog-friendly beaches.
If you want to really make a splash, head on over to the non-gazetted end of Stanley Main Beach and hire some stand up paddle boards or kayaks for a date out on the water.
