We went to the last of the seasons night races, very enjoyable night. Brilliant backdrop of the city, about £1(UK) entry fee although alcohol is about £5 a drink. I recommend taking the lift up to the 7th floor, you get a brilliant view of the racecourse. Very busy but that gives it plenty of atmosphere, food was ok for... More

If you are not invited by a friend to the private boxes the 10 dollar entrance fee to the public course is excellent. great value and wonderful atmosphere.

We held a function there, the staff were attentive, friendly and very helpful. The food was simply delicious and the view at night is so Hong Kong with lights and more lights. Highly recommend for a function (to finish by 8pm however) members lounge

They have moved the horse races to a track out further in the New Territories and you can only see the races here now and then. Such a shame! We wondered why they were so welcoming, they could not get us in the door fast enough and plastered a big VIP sticker on our chests. All we could do was... More

A great evening at the races. There are plenty of other things to see during the week including rugby and football matches.

Happy valley racing is a must for all visitors to Hong Kong. Savour the atmosphere of the racing under floodlights also the betting by the locals, enjoy a beer between races

I could get a glimpse to the Happy Valley Racecourse from my hotel room and post enquiries with friends I made it as a point to visit there. In the very next week three of us visited there and it was fun. I would say it is a good place to hangout which is well maintained and clean. Also you... More
