Back in the colonial days, Hong Kong could only buy British-made buses. Today, there is a bit more variety with Swedish and German manufacturers to choose from. Ironically, some non-air-conditioned British-made HK buses have been bought by UK operators and have returned home.
The majority of the buses in Singapore dont seem to be the same models as those used in Britain. Most of them are different, the only ones that I've noticed are the same are some of the double deckers as well as some of the bendy busses.
Some of the best busses I've traveled on in Britain are Nottingham's:
I love all the Eruopean buses more than the US buses especially the double deckers the modern ones the bendys are allright many people tell me they are extrmely obnoxious in the city because there so wide they take up the whole road but I think there very modern compared to US Buses The top three pics from the last post are my favorite type of british buses

4. The St. Nicholas Cliff Lift from 1929.
