The clock tower is nearby the exit of TST star ferry pier, a good place take few pictures and chill out.

If you are on a time- budget, you might want to consider visiting this attraction at night since it is elegant to look, plus it's the entrance to the Avenue of Stars (which I find it best to look at night), and wait for the Symphony of Lights at 8PM. LOCATION: The attraction is located in Tsim Sha Tsui, near... More

You really realize the impact Britain had on Hong Kong when you see the Clock Tower. It's nice for photo taking and gathering with friends and family to look over the harbor.

Well lit and is next to an amazing view of Hong Kong over the water which looks fantastic lit up. Music and light shows around Christmas time . Lots of other tourists though but worth the visit if you are keen to see how vast and tall Hong Kong is.

Not much to see but a good place to meet folks or to take a few pictures after getting off the star ferry.

This clock tower is located in Tsm Sha Tui near Star Ferry port. It is not so huge, so people are likely to use it as the appointment point. When people are waiting, they can enjoy nice ocean view. So people do not feel boring at all. Even though the person is stranger in Hong Kong, the clock tower is... More

It is just a clock tower and that is it. You will see it if you go down and use Star Ferry but a special trip is not needed. It is a tall structure with clock faces in it and not much more.

For reasons unknown there are 2 entries on TA for this tower. It is a nice landmark, great for people watching in the evening (lots of wedding photography going on) and fun to check some historical pictures online and then compare with what we have there now. Not a destination in itself, but the whole package of ferry, promenade, skyline,... More

No one would seriously suggest that you would come to HK, or even Kowloon, just to see this but it IS a pretty clock tower ... I have been used to seeing it from across the harbour for the last 20 years and would miss it if it were not there.... You pretty much have to pass it after disembarking... More

You can see it in the photo. That's it. Not worth a special trip. This is a relic from a train station that used to be at this site. Now the trains run from the huge Hung Hom station in Kowloon. You will see this tower when you explore the promenade by the harbour.
