“Easy to spot and nice for photos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2014 NEW

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

“Very good spot to meet your friend!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2014

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 very famous and everybody knows where it is located. So this is the very good point to meet your friends, I used it several times. They came from Japan. They were stanger. But they did not miss it.

“Just a clock tower”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2014

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.

“It is the Canton-Kowloon Railway clock tower”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2014

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, ave of the stars is well worth a visit.

“Attractive landmark, don't knock it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2014

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 from the Star Ferry so why not stand beneath and take a nice shot of it with the palm tree next to it.... I do that every time!
