Overview

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!

We booked a corporate box for a great day out. The food and staff were first class. The complex was amazing and the track brilliant, it's a pity my horses didn't apprieciate it.

Had been hearing about this Racecourse for years and it was interesting to be there and witness it. The atmosphere is carnival like and it is well worth the trip.

This racecourse was really big with lots to offer! Plenty of food and drink. A good meeting place for lots of expats. You can bet on the races or just enjoy the atmosphere.

Had an amazing night here last night. The food is amazing and the beer and wine kept coming. Great view from the terrace where our table was. Shame about the rain but we were well covered with the gazebos.

Our holiday was a racing one so the trip to HV was the main focus of the holiday. We were not disappointed. We booked a corporate suite and the hospitality was outstanding. What a view you get at night of the amazing backdrop.
