About Happy Valley Racecourse, Hong Kong

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

  • I had a blast here! I could see my self going here every Wednesday with my friends to have some beers and a good time. The general admission area is very large with plenty of standing and sitting room. You can even stand right up next to the edge of the race course. we could almost touch the grass with our hands. The food prices inside we very reasonable, I'm used to paying 5 times the normal price when going to a sporting event in the States, but not here. The place as a whole was very clean and all the staff was friendly, even helped us learn how to bet.

  • Awesome place to see horse races, bet, meet A LOT of Western people and drink for no reason. Loved it ! Beer is not so expensive and public entrance is free. Go on Wednesday !

  • The best thing to do on a Wednesday night. Lively crowd and fun atmosphere. It's really easy to make bets and theres food and drinks as well. The racecourse has a nice skyline view in the background which makes it quite picturesque. Highly recommend to give it a visit!

  • A large corporate area with excellent views for every race. Facilities were clean and well maintained. Easy to enter and exit the track. A great evening out.

  • We went to Moon Koon Restaurant for lunch. It is a Chinese cuisine outlet for members. We order dim sum and fried noodles. The food is well cooked and the enviroment is cozy with the whole of the race course as background. Outsiders were once allowed to enjoy such eating environment by paying a 10% service charge which I myself as being a member do not object. But socialists in the Territory pressured the government to tighten the rules on the usage of social clubs facilities and thus such allowance was cancelled.
