I love this last remaining relic of the train terminus for Kowloon-Canton Railway in Tsim Sha Tsui, particulary at Christmas and the Chinese New Year. The surrounding area is an ideal place to watch the festive illuminations. At 8pm when the weather is fine, I can enjoy the Symphony of Lights.

Heritage listed tower alongside the Cultural Centre. The Star Ferry terminal is in the foreground with some great shots of Hong Kong Island across the bay.

It's just that, a Clock Tower. I would've wished that they have a museum somewhere which shows the history and the significance of the Clock Tower around the area. But sadly, there is none. You can however, go to other museums to learn more about Hong Kong's history.

While the clock Tower itself is not overly impressive to look at, it does stand out in the cityscape. It is a single structure of reddish bricks and does have some interesting enough design for what it is. Sure, if you are at the Star Ferry or at the Tsim Tsa Tsui waterfront, do go here for taking a Photo.... More

Well maintained remnant of the past with lovely water feature leading up to it makes a nice photo opportunity, somewhat different to the Hong Kong Island skyline in the opposite direction!

It's difficult to miss the clock tower. It's visible as soon as you alight on the Tsim sha tsui side from the ferry. However, while you can click a couple of photos with the tower in the background, there's nothing really more to it. Don't venture out specially for this.

Found it difficult to get a good picture angle for the clock tower, especially at night, but you'll probably see it anyway if you go to Victoria Harbour from Tsim Sha Tsui (which I recommend).
