We were in Hong Kong for 8 nights and this was certainly one of the highlights of our holiday. Not being into gambling or even horse racing we had seen this on T.V. in the past and thought we would give it a go. How pleased we were that we did. The evening went like clockwork from the pick up to the drop off and the hospitality we enjoyed was second to none. The food was an excellent standard and the drinks never stopped flowing. We were fortunate to be seated on a table where everyone was there to enjoy themselves and we made some friends whom we will never forget. The horse racing is a spectacle not to be missed even if it's not your cup of tea...it's a flood lit race course in the middle of a metropolis....the photograph's you take alone are worth it. The trip even included a walk around the paddock before a race and a standing position right on the finishing post for the same race.To cap it all off we had winners from 5 of the 8 races....not bad to say we weren't into horse racing or gambling. if you don't want to gamble that's fine...there's no pressure at all. go for the experience....you won't be disappointed !Reviewed by: John U, December 2013
We had a great night. The dinner was buffet style and the red wine flowed. We met some great people. Loved going down near the horses. Had a few successful flutters.Reviewed by: Sue G, December 2013
Great night out ... very well arranged from pick up to drop off. The vistors area and buffet dinner was fantastic ... getting the opportunity to be close to the track and horses was also very enjoyable. A must do when visiting Hong KongReviewed by: Adam D, November 2013

This trip did not start well as the tour company does not pick you up from your hotel and we got lost trying to find the pick up point. We were 6 minutes late and got told off by the lady doing the tour. On our way to the track we were given instructions on how to bet and so forth but was also given a lecture on smoking. Not impressed! The actual track, facilities and food were awesome and we did end up having a really good time. We all walked away winners.Reviewed by: Jeffey8860, November 2013
