Breathtaking view from the adjacent terrace at night! This is one thing you should not miss, one of the views that left a trace in my mind, just like the first time I saw Manhattan's skyline, or Singapore's. Get there in the evening, to see the light from the skyscrapers reflected in the water. Whether you are alone or with... More

Just landed in the afternoon, so we walked around our stay in Tsim Sha Tsui area. We went to 1881 and continued walking to harbor, visited this Clock Tower, take a seat enjoying the sea. Then continued walking to Harborcity to have lunch. Not much visitors near Clock Tower in the month of December, weather was quite cold and windy.

You can go to Former Kowloon-Canton Railway Clock Tower by taking MTR Tsim Sha Tsui (Exit E). The clock tower itself looks interesting and classic because of its red brick and granite tower. We were there during Hong Kong Pulse 3D Light Show and it was really amazing. You couldn't imagine just a simple clock tower can excite you. Anyhow,... More

Hum..... how do you rate a clock tower? Well, it keeps good time, although not as percise as NASA. As a tower, it certainly stands head and shoulders above the rest. And as a landmark, you would have to know where it is to begin with, before you could use it as a reference point. Having said that, it's nice... More

This is located in Tsim Sha Tsui, adjacent to the Star Ferry. It is a very beautiful clock tower. I always see it in Hong Kong dramas. It's so much fun to see it in person. It's so nice to take a stroll down the harbor and see this beautiful tower.

Located adjacent to the star ferry terminal- the clock tower was part of the previous transport interchange until the 1970s. It now makes a good meeting point as it such a well known landmark. Looks good in the setting sun.

If you happen to visit the Tsim Sha Tsui promenade by the Victoria Harbour waterfront, it's hard to miss this towering red brick & granite monument. Impressive and picture-worthy!
