Did a lap around the Clock Tower; it's situated right by the Star Ferry terminus on the Kowloon side. Handsome and stately, it's a nice reminder of the past as well as a handy meeting point among the immense crowds milling about.

When the area around the clock tower was rebuilt the builders fortunately left this slice of history as a reminder of the grand times in Hong Kong when the harbor was the center of the universe for trade.
