Bonham Strand is a combination of two streets in Sheung Wan
, Hong Kong

This street renders the early shore line after 1842.The streets are named after Sir George Bonham, the third Governor of Hong Kong (1848–1854), who led the reconstruction effort of Sheung Wan after a fire destroyed part of it in 1851.
