A lot of history to be told on this uneventful event happening every day at noon. It is a short walk though the tunnel beside the Excelsior Hotel, before reaching the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club is where the one-gun salute is fired everyday at noon. Follow my photos step by step and you would experience something unique to old... More

A one-shot salute from a formal naval artillery daily at noon 12pm sharp. It was a punishment by the Royal Naval Officer to the Jardine Matheson Company for their gun salute whenever the head of company sailed into port. The company has since kept the tradition. Visitors will be able to witness the firing from a safe distance, and the... More

It is one of things we knew of but never went to on any of our other trips. Thought we would do it this year and it certainly was worth seeing. There is signage to get to the Excelsior hotel, but hard to find the underpass under the road. Staff will point you in the right direction and we found... More

If you are in the Causeway Bay area you can witness this quirky ritual that as other reviewers have said, has been going for many many years. The easiest way to get there across the very busy main road, is through the underground car park below the World Trade Centre and Excelsior Hotel. If you cant get there in time... More

It takes part in Causeway Bay neart the WTC. A guard comes around 11H45 to prepare the ceremony. He rings the bell twice before actually firing the gun only once. Once the ceremony over, the guard opens the gates and lets visitors in for a few photos. Nice to see, be on time so you don't miss it.

Quite a walk from Causeway Bay, need to walk through a tunnel beneath the World Trade Center (basement carpark) to reach this place. It's free and it's fun to watch a cannon at close range. The guard will only fire the cannon once. Get your camera ready when the guard starts to reach for the strap. He will pull the... More

It was fun witnessing the firing of the "Jardine Noonday Gun", a tradition that dates back to the early days of Hong Kong. You will not have a hard time finding the place, there's a clear direction going to the site.

Tradition in style... Include this in your itinerary when you are in the neighbourhood prior to go for lunch. You'll be surprised!

We were on a mission to locate this gun for an altogether unrelated purpose - geocaching! We were so close when we were told "duck down that lane, take the second door, go downstairs and along the corridor/tunnel"! Well that was our short adventure getting here. We missed it being fired but still enjoyed watching all the little ferries come... More
