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!

Who doesn't like a day at the tracks. You get a good seat and a great way to spend the day. Live winning some money then hitting the shops

having been to most race meetings around the world Happy Valley on a Wednesday is the best fun night out you could possible have. crowded busy and amazing atmosphere with thousands in the beer garden doing what most blokes enjoy beer and gambling. you are close to the action with a parade ring wrapping around the members and public area's and you are right on the track being so close you can hear the thunder of hoofs racing by. if you are going to Hong Kong don't miss a night out at Happy Valley

As a fair novice, I found the betting system a little hard to fathom but great fun and a great night. I'd go again if in the area

We went for the HK Derby race. Was a good outing to see the locals in all their glory. Will do it again.

Went here with a local friend and we had the world of fun, bring a paper to get some betting 'tips' take some time to understand the betting and you can have a lot of fun and it doesn't have to cost a fortune. The locals love their betting and are fanatical, fun to watch them.
