Almost worth a glance on your way past, but not quite. This clock tower certainly has plenty of history and if you really want to make sure you tick off every little monument on the list, then go ahead and wander over for a look. The great injustice of the clock tower is the bell. It used to toll regularly... More

You'll walk past it if you're going on the Tsim Sha Tsui promenade but it's not worth a visit on its own merit. Historical but uninteresting.

Nothing special here. If you don't have much time just skip this place from your itinerary. If you go to star ferry pier from avenue of the star, you will see this clock tower. That's what I did.

We passed the clock at night, all lit up and it looked very impressive. Also it is nice to sit on the edge around this structure at night and enjoy some of the street performers - one particular group of teenage boys were singing Coldplay songs and were doing a good job of it too. It is a lively area... More

The clock tower is a historical landmark in Hong Kong that is located at the end of the Avenue of Starts, next to the Star Ferry Pier in Kowloon. Originally built between 1913-1915 as part of the Kowloon-Canton Railway terminus, the tower is 44 meters tall, topped by a 7 metre high lightening rod and is made of red brick... More

The clock tower is part of a railway station that used to stand there. If you search the web for pictures of that railway station, you'll see that it was a very nice building, of which the clock tower was just a small part, and completed the pictures. Unfortunately the railway station is no more. It was replaced by a... More

not so attractive clock tower. Its on the victoria harbour. Near the avenue of stars . If you happen to see the symphony of lights make an attempt to get to the clock tower and pose a picture . No big thing about it . Has some place to sit along and stay calm.

A sentimental favorite for millions of Chinese immigrants to begin new lives in this city. If you are in this area from Avenue of Stars to the HK Cultural Center along a waterfront in Victoria Harbor, it’s worth the visit.

The Tower is adjacent to the Star Ferry and close to both Nathan and Canton Roads shopping. It is a landmark location and presents itself as an ideal meeting point. In itself not a significant piece of building but an historic place for numerous reasons. The area is scenic overlooking the famous harbour towards Hong Kong Island. It is also... More

The best thing about the clock tower is...it just there. If you happen to come and see the sound and light show, or , the avenue of stars, you will see this landmark standing tall. Architecturally, this is no leaning tower of Pisa. Just a tower with a clock in it....lol. See it , and write a similar review on... More
