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 - Write a Review
Every Wednesday evening, 8 races from 6:30 to 11pm. This is absolutely amazing. Beers, concerts, nice people and bets are there to make the night really enjoyable. I would advice to take a magazine with all the stats in it. It will allow you to bet with some kind of rationale behind... not only by picking the horse’s name that sounds nice! ;-)
Probably the most unique race course in the world. Not only is the urban environment unparalleled, the course layout is also quirky with runners climbing uphill down the backstretch, finishing downhill after a tight turn into the final stretch. Races are generally held on Wednesday nights, but there are one or two day-time weekend meets held at Happy Valley every year as well if you're lucky enough to catch those.
So cool that they have night races with the in the heart of Hong Kong with the city backdrop. Happy Valley is a really great track with a fun party vibe. If you go on Wednesdays in October you can enjoy Oktoberfest as well as the night races and entry is cheap.
Amazing venue, friendly staff and amazing food. We attended the tourist tour in the corporate boxes. Tour guide was extremely friendly and accommodating.
Great atmosphere on a race night but the amount of people smoking in your face can be off-putting. Drinks were fairly priced but long queues for food. Eat before you get there if you can.
