"Sha Tin Racetrack" Hong Kong Things to Do Tip by bjwong

Hong Kong Things to Do: 2,761 reviews and 5,451 photos

Horse racing is a big deal in Hong Kong. The more famous racetrack is in Happy Valley but this one in Sha Tin is just as fun. If you are a tourist (i.e. you have a foreign passport) you can actually get into the visitor's box and view the races from there. The easiest thng to do is just book a day tour from one of the hotels. They'll pick you up, serve you lunch, and even start you off with a little betting money so that even novice gamblers (like me) can get in on the action quickly.
