This clock tower is located at one end of the Avenue of the Stars. It is worth a photo if you are passing by.

I had a look at the Clock Tower when passing by while in TST. It looks impressive but nothing special to me. It could be more interesting if you go inside (not sure how to do that?) and learn the history a bit. If you visit TST good to have a look when passing by and take few photos. It... More

Just a nice looking tower surrounded by palm trees and located near public transport. Many benches nearby and very clean public toilets in Auditoria Centre located next to it. Plenty of space for young children to run around. Located close to the ferry wharf. Not sure why so many bad reviews. Just relax and enjoy the view.

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.
