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
Extremely fun. The odds system is crazy though - you don't get the odds that are there when you bet, you get the odds they settle on after all bets have been placed. Not really sure why they do this but it cost me $100! Still a great evening. Shop around for the cheapest pitcher.
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.
Great experience, given the fact that hk people take horse racing seriously. Great party vibe! Minimum bet 10hkd pretty affordable. Remember to head upstairs to get a good view of the race
Absorb the atmosphere here. Worth a short trip and a small bet. Tourists enter for free. The entrance is at the far end so do take a tram instead of walking.
Love the dishes at the club, the vibes is exciting and good local experience! I prefer going down to the ground floor (general entry) for the local excitement.
