This year, Link’s Stanley Plaza is hosting its annual “Paws by the Sea” with the theme “Paws on Tour” from 24 March to 2 April 2018, making it Hong Kong’s first seaside travel and camping experience. With a lot of activities on offer, you might want to “strategize” your itinerary to avoid missing something you want to do or see.

So, what to expect on Mar 24 (Sat) and Mar 25 (Sun)?

What to see:

1. A one-of-a-kind camper van, designed by Judson Beaumont, a renowned product designer from Canada, that allows you and your dogs to get on and admire.

These carriers are designed to travel with a scooter or a car to ensure dogs are kept safely on the go.
