Horseracing is Hong Kong's favourite sport. From September to June/July, on most Wednesday evenings and during the day at weekends, hooves pound down the stretch at Happy Valley on Hong Kong Island and Sha Tin in the New Territories. Happy Valley is surrounded by Wong Nai Chung Road and Morrison Hill Road.
The track was rebuilt in 1995, and became a world-class horse racing facility. Several football, hockey and rugby fields are encircled by the horseracing track. Aside from the excitement of the races, the track also has four distinct horse-related exhibitions, a cinema and a souvenir shop.

Live puzzle escape games are all weather activities that also get the grey matter between your ears working. The premise is simple: work out a series of puzzles to gain your freedom within the 45-minute time limit. However, in reality, it's anything but simple. Working in a group of between two to six players, you have to piece together the clues against the clock. Games are designed for anyone aged seven and over. Don’t worry if you get stuck as each game is assigned a 'Game Master' to offer assistance if needed. There are live escape games dotted all over Hong Kong but we especially like Lost HK, close to Times Square Shopping Mall in Causeway Bay. They have different games to play so you can play multiple times if there’s a particularly heavy storm overhead.

Oriental Health Chinese Medicine Clinic
Sure, you could just go to the hotel spa and be pampered with a body scrub and oil massage, but you are in Hong Kong so why not take the opportunity to get a traditional Chinese acupuncture massage? While certainly not for everyone, the practice of acupuncture dates back thousands of years and is revered by many as a way to increase vitality, boost the immune system, and cure persistent aches and pains. There are many acupuncture clinics around Hong Kong but we advise researching carefully before choosing. Oriental Health in Central is often recommended.

Trekking in Hong Kong Island
A trip to the hills is a good way to get some relief from the constant hustle of life in this economic tiger. To truly appreciate how developed the island is, you need only to climb to the top of Tai Mo Shan – at 958 metres, it's Hong Kong's tallest peak.
With a gentle mountain breeze you'll see some amazing sights. Apart from the breathtaking scenery, trekking in Hong Kong can be a great fitness activity, as well as a way of making friends.
