This is a fun way to spend one evening. I understand the grandstand holds 55,000 people. Good mixing spot of ex-pats along the rail.

Great excitement and good times to be had. Don't spend more than you can afford! Smile! You'll see the serious gamblers and the non-serious gamblers.

We are not race goers but a group at the hotel had booked a mini bus and invited us. It was a warm night drinks and street food on sale. We never bet but we did the silly trick of picking names and colours. You...More

Wan Chai / Causeway Bay
Wan Chai and Causeway Bay are the retail centres of
Hong Kong Island. Filled with shops, malls and
restaurants, both areas are bustling with people –
tourists and locals alike. Causeway Bay has one of the
highest rents on the planet, and is a bit more
polished and modern than its Wan Chai counterpart.

Hi 518adrian! No need to pre-book unless you wish to be in one of the private rooms overlooking the course. Simply show up (easiest is via MTR Causeway Bay) or taxi.... Enjoy!

I am not sure as I went at night but I seem to remember that children can go but you are right they cannot go into certain areas - it is worth looking on the site as it is very clear but you will have a fab time,
