AccueilActivités à faire à Happy Valley

A visit to the Happy Valley Racecourse - the home to Hong Kong racing since 1846 - is a must-visit if you are here on a Wednesday. Here, the locals engage in the city's chief recreational passion - horseracing! The "Sport of Kings," the only legal form of gambling in Hong Kong, is embraced with unbridled fervour by locals. While there's a second racecourse in Sha Tin for weekend meets, nothing beats the adrenaline-charged atmosphere of Happy Valley. As the travel writer Jan Morris once wrote, "Happy Valley on race day is a bitter, brilliant, grasping place." Gambling on the horses is serious business in Hong Kong, with thousands of spectators flocking weekly to the track. Night races are particularly interesting, with bright lights, a frantic atmosphere and big winning payouts. Having previously worked with the Jockey Club, I know the ins and outs of the place and can tell you about the work that goes on behind-the-scenes to organise this massive event every week. Since I am also a bit of a gambler, I can show you how locals suss out the best horses and make their decisions! Depending on your preference, we can either choose the casual beer garden to relax in or pick a VIP experience for dinner, drinks , interactive gaming and a balcony view. It will be a fun night to remember, and you will leave the city a little bit richer in culture, and pocket (with any luck!)
