Old Clock Tower by the Harbor

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.

This place is a good choice if you are cruising around the city. Build in British style it will remind you about colonial time of Hong Kong.

It's a clock tower. You have a photo taken with it and move on. Nothing more...nothing less. It's right near the Star Ferry terminal and the promenade so you will be there at some point anyway.

It is a historical landmark but otherwise nothing. The tower clock was part of the rail terminal building which is demolished and the iconic clock remains.

This is a good place to watch the endless neon lights across Victoria Harbour on Hong Kong Island, from North Point, Causeway Bay, Wanchai, Central to Sheungwan. At 9pm there was ten minutes laser lights and music show on the Hong Kong Cultural Centre and the Kowloon Canton Railway Clock Tower.
