There is one thing no one has really done. A full miniature of the former kowloon walled city. That is gigantic project. It was supposed to be little refuge for those trying to escape China back in the day but it became a cesspool of crime and constant building that enclosed the walls. It should be done anyway as a reminder of what it happened and where things were heading.

I seriously do wonder why people fantasize about Hong Kong still being a colony ruled by Europeans
Not even a debate about which government is better but being ruled by a different people is unacceptable

The West are putting sanctions and curbs on Hong Kong's future development all thanks to those brainwashed Hong Kong hooligans who would bear the brunt for their own stupidity. Nobody would care less for them
