Hong Kong’s Happy Valley is one of the world’s busiest racecourses. Originally swamp land’s the course is now the largest stretch of flat land on the Hong Kong island. Wednesday evening races are the best for atmosphere, they are held evey second week and the fun kicks off at 7:30, with thosands attending. It pays to get there early as quiet offten the 55,000 capacity track sells out. For something really special make a booking at the Moon Koon Restaurant which is on the second floor of the main stand, food is good and price not too bad and the view is amazing, a great way to watch the action. Billions are bet at the track every year, Hong Kong runs on money, and if there’s a chance to win some just about everyone will give it a go. Just remember not everyone wins!
