 Whether or not you are a horse racing enthusiast, horse racing in Hong Kong is an experience not to be missed! Beautiful horses, skillful jockeys, crowds going wild – all create an exciting, fun-filled, thrilling atmosphere in a world-class venue.

With over 170 years of history, horse racing in Hong Kong is taken very seriously and it is a major part of the country’s economy. The sport was introduced by the British when they first came to Hong Kong in 1841. Since then, it has become a sport for locals, expats and tourists – who come for the excitement, the sport and the gambling!


A Night at the Hong Kong Races

18:00 - 23:00

At approximately 6pm, the guide will meet you at your hotel. You will take the subway to Causeway Station and then walk to Hong Kong Jockey Club at Happy Valley. Your ticket includes access to the public stand and the racing will start at approximately 7pm. Happy Valley Racecourse was built in 1845 to provide horse racing for British expats living in Hong Kong. At that time, the area was swampland, but on such a hilly island, it was the only flat ground suitable for horse racing. Before the racing starts, you will receive a tutorial to get you race-ready and fully immersed in the racing atmosphere. As the horse racing action begins, you can soak up the electric atmosphere and cheer on your favourite horses.

When the racing is over, you will take the subway to Jordan Street for a visit to Temple Street Night Market. Hong Kong’s liveliest market covers several streets and sells everything from clothes and watches to handicrafts and art works. There are plenty of street food stalls and you may even see Chinese opera singers and fortune tellers.

At the end of the tour, you will return to your hotel by public transport, or you can opt to remain at the market at your leisure.
