Hong Kong is considered to be a very pet friendly city. And we have statistics to back this. In its latest report published by the Census department in 2019, It was estimated that just under 10% of all HK households kept pets.
We Hong Kongers also believe in offering a healthy lifestyle to our fur buddies, even going a wee bit overboard at times😊. Scenes where parents dress up their pets or take them on a stroll in prams etc are not foreign.
Most of us, however like to go have a coffee/drink or a meal with our four legged friends. Even though more can be done in Hong Kong in the space of pet friendly eateries we list below a few of our favorites on Hong Kong Island. Some even have a special menu for our dogs. Go check them out and as usual let us know how you like them or if you have any other additions to our list 😍.
