The clock tower is important from a heritage perspective to the local residents but its not a particularly important attraction or stop for visitors. You can't help but see the clock tower when you are walking the Avenue of Stars towards the Star Ferry or when are about to take/arrive on/from the Star Ferry in TST. You really just need a quick look at the clock tower, take a photo and its time to move on.

The clock tower is situated in front of the harbor and there is a nice, narrow reflection pool that contributes to decent pictures. However, the real star of the area is the Victoria Harbor itself which you can view wonderfully from the park-like area right in front of the clock tower. There are many benches and places to sit, rest and just look at the mighty HK skyline, which is best done at night in the dark. We still regularly stop here to admire the harbor and skyline.

On the basis that you'll see the clock tower anyway when you visit the Avenue of Stars and/or Star Ferry, we recommend a quick stop and view of the clock tower. Otherwise, this is not worth making a specific effort to see. Just catch it as you pass by doing more important sightseeing in HK.

The Clock Tower is very picturesque and a lovely spot for photos.

Don't make a special trip, but if you're visiting the Avenue of Stars or the Tsim Sha Tsui Star Ferry Pier, make the effort to wander around to the plaza in front of the Clock Tower.
