Living in Happy Valley
Happy Valley enjoys a village-style atmosphere at the base of several steep winding roads. It’s minutes from main business and shopping districts and yet is known for being offering a peaceful respite from its nearby, more high-density neighbours.
A mix of mid-to-high-rise, older and ultra-modern apartments with amenities and of varying sizes are prevalent. Some of the buildings are popular with the Racecourse view with surrounding scenery in the 1950s.
Outdoor spaces plus large living areas are available in Happy Valley for families who need extra space.
Travel & Connections
Happy Valley is well-connected to the rest of Hong Kong, with easy access to public transportation. If you’re not in a hurry, Happy Valley tram terminus allows a relaxed ride to Central in about 30 minutes. A cab ride will get you there in 5 to 10 minutes. Walking to Causeway Bay takes about 10 minutes from downtown Happy Valley. There are plenty of cabs and buses available to hail throughout the area. This makes it easy to get around and explore the many attractions that Hong Kong has to offer.
The commercial streets are a hot spot for international and local restaurants, day spas, gourmet food and speciality stores, mostly at ground level, adding to the village atmosphere. Enjoy the romantic vibe with authentic French cuisine at Amigo Restaurant, relax with friends at the day cafe & night bar Coffeelin, and meet the local culture at Cheung Hing old-school cha chaan teng (tea restaurant) for an egg tart and a cup of HK-style milk tea, all you need are in Happy Valley.
The famous Happy Valley Racecourse is a centre point for the area, as is the popular Hong Kong Football Club. Experience the Hong Kong nightlife staple with a Wednesday night party blend of drinks and hourse racing at the Racecourse.
Close to all main business areas, with the shopping and dining mecca of Causeway Bay on its doorstep. It’s only a few minutes by cab to hiking trails, like the Country Park of Jardine's Lookout & Wong Nai Chung Gap Trail, so being surrounded by hills, a green aspect is common.
