Hong Kong Sights

Updated 06/17/2013

Fodor's Review

A block east of the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club stands the Noonday Gun, which Noël Coward made famous in his song Mad Dogs and Englishmen; it's still fired at noon every day. It is said that the tradition began when a Jardine employee fired a gun in salute of the company's head arriving at the port, angering a member of the Royal Navy.
