Visited the racecourse using the train service. We were advised if we took our Passports we would be able to get access to the Members Enclosure. We did this and paid $38AUD, this we found out enabled us to sit in two small uncovered sections of the Stand in the blazing sun and we had access to one takeaway food... More

Hkd10 to enter racecourse. Easy to get to on the MTR which stops at racecourse station on race days. Large stand. Many food places inside including noodles, KFC and McDonalds. Can also get some beers. Lots of gambling booths and betting machines inside the stand building so easy to place a bet. Clean toilets. Large, open spaces. Some games including... More

What was supposed to be a good day ruined by a rude cashier at the hotdog stand. She was really mean and angry every times I went up there to pick up drinks and snack. Not until my mom went up there after race 9(total of 10races) she was yelled from far telling my mom that they are already closed.... More

no trip to hong kong is complete without a trip to the racecourse. here you will find yourself in the middle of an extravacanza. people are putting bets in, some shouting in joy, some disaapointment, couples are kissing each other cause they have won, girls taking their tops off to show support. great fun.

We had a great day at Sha Tin on Monday. The course is easy to get to using the Hong Kong train system. We just went into the public section there and had a great time and backed a few winners. Only bad comments is all the smoke when you come outside the grandstand to watch the race. Next time... More

There are two race courses in Hong Kong; Happy Valley and Sha Tin. I like them both, but they are very different. Whereas Happy Valley is more of a "party" race course which gets very very busy on the evening races, Sha Tin is a little more quiet and more focused onthe racing itself. As for value for money, you... More

A great experience even if you are not into horse racing. This racecourse is huge in all senses. Loads of places to eat and drink. The amount of money gambled by the clientele needs to be seen to be believed. Betting is fairly easy to understand and there were 10 races. Getting to the racecourse is easy using the MRT... More

I booked a tour to Sha Tin since Happy Valley wasn't running while I was in Hong Kong. It was about a 45 bus ride from Central Hong Kong. Traffic was light since it was a Sunday afternoon. There is train service to the track also. Our tour included a buffet lunch/open bar in the grandstand. Food was good but... More
