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!

I go for the view and the ferry more than the clock tower. I have been to this many many times over the last 25+ years and never been there for the clock tower.

Landmark piece of architecture which all Hong Kong people love. A good place to have it at the heart of the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront. Photogenic and it tells the time.

One of the landmarks in Hong Kong you won't miss when you are in TST, the Star Ferry pier is just next to it.

The Cultural centre sits right on top of where the train station was and the clock tower is what remains. It has been cleaned and is I would suspect a landmark for lower Kowloon. It's situated right next to Star ferry terminal and the elevated viewing platform looking to Hong Kong island. A piece of history

This is one of the landmarks across the Tsim Sha Tsui Pier. Pretty easy to find. Walk around and see the harbor lights at night.
