I wouldn't go out of your way to see it

You basically have to see this if you go to the mainland by ferry . It's a small tower with a clock . Nothing special , you can't go up it .

The clock can be seen when you go to Avenue of the Stars or to the Ferry Terminal, nothing to be excited about!

Standing 44-metres tall, the old Clock Tower was erected in 1915 as part of the Kowloon–Canton Railway terminus. Declared Monument that survives as an elegant reminder of the Age of Steam. But, it's just a Landmark for me. Not attraction

It's a landmark and not much more than that. Though one gets a great view over Hong Kong island skyline from there

A historical monument on the Tsim Sha Chui promenade. Made from grey granite and red bricks, stood at heights of 44 meters. The stairs to the top and the bell was not accessible. Not much to see, but when you are at Tsim Sha Chui promenade, you would see this tower.

Certainly i find the clock tower captivating and visit it each time I am in the area Very close to the Star Ferry so kill 2 birds with one stone When railways were abolished, the tower clock was left as a symbol

Shortly after we had made our rafting on the waters of beautiful Chico River on Luzon Island in the Philippines, we left this beautiful country and returned to Hong Kong from whom we started our Far East visit to several countries. Again, it was the Empire Hotel in Kimberly Road in Kowloon, where we stayed for one night. This time... More

In ultramodern HK most of the old is swept away so when I saw it I had no idea what it was but glad it was there and wondered what it was. I dreaded finding out it was built new as part of the cultural centre and promenade as in Macau :) luckily it wasn't it was the original clock... More

The clock tower is average, but the surrounding area is quite fun. On a Sunday night, I took in a number of bands - most were playing Chinese covers, but I came across an excellent punk rock outfit, and very much enjoyed the water front experience.
