Owner description: From the stunning skyline to the spectacle of Lan Kwai Fong, Hong Kong is full of world-class sights for travellers to see. But if you’re looking for fun – to add a little ‘do’ to your ‘see’ – then look no further than Happy Wednesday at Happy Valley Racecourse, the city’s trendiest headquarters for mouth-watering food, thirst-quenching beverages and thrilling excitement both on and off the track. There’s nothing quite like a night at the races in Hong Kong! Week in and week out, Happy Wednesday fans are treated to a full sensory experience, pairing the pulse-pumping entertainment of jousting jockeys with a weekly theme that is integrated into everything from live bands and interactive games to on-course decorations and a delicious, reasonably priced trackside menu. Come in the fall and you’ll be treated to refreshing pints and a festive bratwurst for Oktoberfest – the largest outdoor beer festival in Hong Kong. Drop in during May, however, and it’s all ratatouille and brie, as Happy Wednesday hosts the hugely popular French Nights. It’s an extravaganza that’s fit for Asia’s world city, putting an international twist on a sport that has a rich heritage and cultural tradition for the city’s people. There’s simply nowhere else in the world where you can experience such a seamless blend of racing and lifestyle in one event. Whether you’re a local, an expat, or just visiting Hong Kong, there’s truly something for everyone at Happy Wednesday!

“Great night out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

Great night out and a must visit if you are going to Hong Kong. There are a few different choices for enjoying your evenings racing, the Stable Bend Terrace, with it's BBQ food and bottomless beer for £50.00 was a great night out, but so was The Gallery on the second occasion we visited the racecourse two weeks later.

Get there during Wednesday night or Saturday afternoon. Check the racing schedule before your visit as it may a bit change sometime. No racing day and night during summer break.

“Wednesday night are awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Great Wednesday night out with amazing backdrop of the Hong Kong City Skyline.

Great mixture of expats, locals and tourists mingle in the famous beer garden, sipping a cold one, placing a bet and enjoying the atmosphere.

Great for all ages and a very inexpensive night out, a must in Hong Kong.

Checkout Happy Wednesdays Happey Valley on Facebook.

Enjoy

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

My first time to watch horse racing, it was nice but expect so much crowd as there's a lot of people watching and gamble so its very hot but its raining when were there so glad that we got a good seat to watch the race, there's kind of like beer festival also inside that you can buy clod beer while watching.
