Noonday Gun Overview

Book Hong Kong Hotels Book Hong Kong Holiday Packages

Noonday Gun’s claim to fame is Noel Coward song Mad Dogs and Englishmen . Located on the waterfront in Causeway Bay, the gun fires off every day at noon – a spectacle that you must not miss. The one-gun salute custom started when a Royal Naval Officer became annoyed at Jardine employees for firing off a gunshot when their head sailed into Hong Kong. The daily tradition began as a punishment to that. Today, it is more of an attraction for tourists than a tradition.
