Happy Valley

A view of the Happy Valley race course, as seen here, is a selling point of many condos in Happy Valley

Happy Valley is an area known for its horse racing course. It is also an enclave for a mix of the locals and expatriates when it comes to residents. Many local movie stars also call it their home - or at least one of their homes. There are even some low-rise residences that are so rare in urban Hong Kong. Even the older flats are usually quite well-kept and fetch a handsome price.

There are many nice little restaurants and cafes along Shing Wo Road and on the little side streets.
