Happy Valley Racecourse - Review

The Happy Valley Racecourse is a resurrection of the British era racing grounds that had burned down in 1918. Today, it comes alive during the horse racing seasons, is one of the two racecourses in Hong Kong. Lets get some basic things straight. Racing occurs predominantly on Wednesday nights and some weekends and public holidays, but the Racing Museum is a neat place to visit too. Placing bets is an easy matter, once you get the hang of it (which the attendants are quite happy to help you with). Tourists to Happy Valley can also visit the Hong Kong Racing Museum, which provides a wonderful history of last century. The atmosphere of the place is infectious. A word of caution: it’s damn near impossible to get a taxi in the after race crowd, so slip out quickly at the end.

Happy Valley Racecourse, Hong Kong Reviews

  • If you live in hotels in Wanchai or nearby, it would be good to spend a morning jogging in the race course. Free entry. The entrance is at the Happy Valley team terminal. You need to walk into the park first and find the stairs downwards to the race course. If you like jogging and you like to see huge grassland. This is it. Well, they changed to artificial grass recently if I remember correctly.

  • Really cool vibe. Lots of beer and food. You can put bets on the horses before every race. There’s live entertainment. After 8/9pm, admission is free cause half the races have finished. You can use your octopus card to get in.

  • Half hour between races is difficult to pass with much fun. Come for one or two for the experience. If you are a tourist dress with full pants and appropriate dress shirt and bring your passport. Head to entrance g members entrance to enjoy access!

  • Unreal. Amazing time. Many friendly westerners. You make friends instantly. Beer, food, fun. I have never been horse racing and it was so fun. Go Wednesday. Amazing time with amazing view.

  • It was a really good night! Only 10 HKD at the entrance which you can pay by your octopus card or cash and then you decide if you want to have drinks or food or bet or all the 3 of them. Although it was raining there is place where you can watch without getting wet. And only 2 minutes away from tram terminal happy valley.
