I do not come here for the races anymore. I come here to run on the track. A nice running track in Happy Valley surrounding the race course. Once around is approximately 1.35km. Depending on the weather and the pollution levels, it is a really nice place for a run with different sceneries during the run.

The experience at Happy Valley racecourse was amazing. Happy Valley is on the Hong Kong side hence the vibes are better with more expats. We went on a Wednesday to Adrenaline on a normal racing day which costs HK$xxx per person including a buffet dinner and 1 adrenaline signature drink. As an expat, the buffet was pleasing because they had quite a lot of Tex-mex food such as cajun prawns, Southern fried chicken drumsticks, mac n cheese and chili con carne.

One off the bucket list. Fantastic night. I paid £39 for hospitality at Adrenaline and great value. One drink and an all you can eat buffet, beer was £7 a bottle do not to bad for Hong Kong. A live band between races made it more special. I'd highly recommend

Even pouring rain would not dampen my enthusiasm. Ok, I could have done without walking through the underground walkways to get to the track under the nearby streets and seeing dozens of homeless in dirty conditions, but hey, I have that in my own home city... We stayed for the first 5 of 8 of the Wednesday evening races, watching something on the order of $250 million being bet. It was a terrible evening and we were drenched enough by the 5th race. But, I did get a sense of what it could have been like with a full house of over 50,000 rabid betters. Surrounded by the soaring HK skyline, this was a dynamic activity that I looked forward to and left satisfied with having visited.
