To be honest, I've never been horse racing before, so didn't know what to expect. Race nights can be found via the internet. Happy Valley is about a 10 minute walk from the Causeway Bay MTR subway, but you can also reach it via bus,...More

Wan Chai / Causeway Bay
Wan Chai and Causeway Bay are the retail centres of
Hong Kong Island. Filled with shops, malls and
restaurants, both areas are bustling with people –
tourists and locals alike. Causeway Bay has one of the
highest rents on the planet, and is a bit more
polished and modern than its Wan Chai counterpart.
Beneath the surface there is more than meets the eye –

If you are the international visitor lounge/buffet as part of your tour then the dress is smart casual. So long as the men have a collared shirt and are not wearing denim they will be fine.
Visiting HK on the weekends. Saw the race schedule on the website, race held every Wednesday, and some weeks on Sunday (afternoon) Has anyone been to the afternoon race? Would it be worth a visit?

When I lived in HK, we used the American Club Box, which was fabulous, but you have to be a member or the guest of one. However, the Hong Kong Tourist Board runs a tour for tourists that would probably work well for you... More
