This ritual is over in the space of 30 seconds, but if you like a little history. This is very much worth coming to see. The gardens area is opened up after the gun is fired, for about 30 minutes

Can't believe they carry out this tradition every day at 12 noon since August 1947 after the original cannon was seized during Hong Kong occupation in World War 2. The actual history goes back even before the War - back to 1844!!! You will need...More
