An avid lover of photography? F11 Foto museum should be your new favourite stomping ground. Converted from an 80-year-old European-style flat, this art deco gem houses the city’s first private photo museum and gallery. Visit the art space for regular photo exhibitions – by appointment – including the likes of Pulitzer Prize winner Sergey Ponomarev, renowned French photographer and painter Jacques Henri Lartigue and Italian Magnum photographer Paolo Pellegrin. The museum also showcases retro cameras all year round.
There’s more to Happy Valley than just the racecourse – though, a night at the races remains one of the best things to do in Hong Kong. The area is also home to many historic buildings, notable architecture and art institutions, as well as a wealth of local and international cuisines.
