The Hong Kong flag is flown because The Mandarin Oriental hotel group is based in Hong Kong. Even though most people think of Switzerland when it comes to high-end hotel management, Hong Kong is home to three of the world's top hotel chains: The Peninsula, The Mandarin Oriental, and The Shangri-La hotel groups.

The areas of Knightsbridge, Mayfair and St. James's are where many foreign nations maintain their embassies in London, and are well-known for its luxurious shops, elegant hotels and expensive real estate.

A classic Kensington building, too, with the shallow balconies, strapwork, and stone contrasted with brick. It dominates all the buildings round it.
