Happy Valley is SUPER fun night when you are in Hong Kong. Great atmosphere with very excitable racing enthusiasts. Must visit if this is your first trip to Hong Kong.

Wan Chai / Causeway Bay
Wan Chai and Causeway Bay are the retail centers of
Hong Kong Island. Filled with shops, malls and
restaurants, both areas are bustling with people –
tourists and locals alike. Causeway Bay has one of the
highest rents on the planet, and is a bit more
polished and modern than its Wan Chai counterpart.
Beneath the surface there is more than meets the eye –
