If you intend walking along Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront to view Avenue of the Stars, why not start down near the Star Ferry pier and take in some Hong Kong history at the Clock Tower. Originally part of the Canton Railway, the tower was built around 1915 and is all that remains of the Tsim Sha Tsui Station. Its a... More

Don't go to the foreshore especially to see this! Nice but nothing special, and I wouldn't say really worth a photo! But you will pass it while doing the attractive walk along the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront.

The clock tower is midway between the Star Ferry Pier and the Hong Kong Cultural Centre . As you make your way across Victoria Harbour you can see the tower . Worth a photo !!

Located near the Star Ferry Pier and HK Cultural Centre in Tsim Sha Tsui, this old landmark is just that, a clock tower. Nothing special with it. You take some pictures and go. You won’t miss it when walking on the other side of the Victoria Harbour towards the Harbour City. On the other hand, there are some interesting stores... More

As of the day I visited (January 28, 2014), there were some Chinese New Year and Valentines Day decorations nearby. While the clock tower doesn't look very special among the others around the world, it is conveniently located in Tsim Sha Tsui near the Star Ferry Pier, Harbour City and Avenue of Stars. If you're on your way to those... More

Clock tower is located at the best place and that the highlight of this attraction, otherwise this is very simple tower with clock on the top. but this location is excellent and this attraction gets covered by default due to its location. In the same place you can see the light show of Hong Kong between 8:00 – 8:15 PM.... More

As we like to try out the ferry from Kowloon to Hongkong, we stroll by the Clock Tower, It stands tall at approximately 44 metres just next to the Star Ferry Pier. This clock tower is listed as a declared monument in HongkOng. Hotels and Shopping Arcades & the Salisbury Garden is just near by thus attracted many locals and... More

The clock tower is by the ferry port which is handy as you wouldn't go out of your way to see this. As its in the area it's worth a picture. Overall is just a clock tower, not much more to say

This one is on many websites in the top ten things to see in Hong Kong. When going to the Star Ferry it is right there. Nice tower, not much more you can say.

It's just a tower, but I have seen it my whole life and enjoy it in person. The view from the walk across the harbor is wonderful, especially at night.
