Before it was time to go back to work we went down to Hong Kong for a few days of warm weather, shopping and an evenings racing at Happy Valley racetrack.
Happy Valley was built by the British on the only piece of land on the island that is flat. The locals originally had paddy fields here to grow rice. The British banned the locals from growing rice, drained the paddies and set up the racetrack.
Happy Valley is very modern with many restaurants and restaurants. Racing takes place on a Wednesday evening under floodlights which makes for a great spectacle.
