Where is it?
Happy Valley is nestled between Causeway Bay and Wan Chai in a valley further inland from the Victoria Harbour waterfront. Being a little away from the rest of the districts, the area boasts its own unique village atmosphere. There are ample shops, banks and restaurants amongst the residential complexes, making everything in walking distance.
Why live here?
The area has a pleasant, village-like atmosphere and low-density environment. Shopping (supermarkets and open markets) and dining options are plenty. Causeway Bay is a close taxi, bus or tram ride away. The racecourse, the main attraction here, is not only a fun place on race night; it also offers an open, green space for football, and a jogging track. The Hong Kong Japanese School and French International School are nearby. The Hong Kong Sanatorium, a renowned private hospital offers 24-hour outpatient services.
