Hello Hong Kong Bespoke Tours | The Hopewell Centre in Wanchai, Hong Kong

Hong Konger's like the Mini because it looks cute and is made by BMW, the wonderful chocolate creations at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel and more from Hong Kong Cemetery.

The Hopewell Centre shoots out green lasers at night time, it also has a revolving restaurant on the 62nd floor and has been around for around 40 years, that makes it iconic but somewhat dated

I am a bit of an odd Englishman, I do not like tea, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and Mini's. 

The Mini is hugely popular in Hong Kong because it is seen as cute but more importantly it has status as the car is made by BMW - not the two best reasons to buy a car.

Lugard is a famous name in Hong Kong, we have Lugard Road at the Peak so I am thinking that this chap was a member of the famous Lugard family, we had a Governor named Lugard from 1907 - 1912. 

This grave (and many others) is located in Hong Kong Cemetery in Happy Valley
