“A landmark !!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2013

As we like to try out the ferry from Kowloon to Hongkong, we stroll by the Clock Tower, It stands tall at approximately 44 metres just next to the Star Ferry Pier. This clock tower is listed as a declared monument in HongkOng. Hotels and Shopping Arcades & the Salisbury Garden is just near by thus attracted many locals and tourists to this landmark in Hongkong.My friend told us to look out for an Ice cream Van which seemed to be the star of the place. The ice creams taste great but the Seller's attitude towards his customer is undesirable which really leave a bad impression on this lovely landmark of HongKong. Infact he scolded one couple for taking his picture, not a very nice scene.
Nevertheless, the clock tower is just another touristic spot that one should not miss in Hongkong

“Clock tower for century”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

In the past, it was the railway station. Only the tower stands for century. Not only the transportation means improved to be electrical, the whole district is the cultural centre.ie Arts Museum, Science Museum, Oceam Terminal, Star Ferry,1881 . Nearby the 5 flag poles gather or date land mark. Many young ones, old ones, wait under the flag poles to meet their happy dates. In the past not too many shops or land marks, here the flag poles.The tower is high enough to be seen in the sea.

“It's a clock tower”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

The clock tower is by the ferry port which is handy as you wouldn't go out of your way to see this. As its in the area it's worth a picture. Overall is just a clock tower, not much more to say

“Yes a tower”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

This one is on many websites in the top ten things to see in Hong Kong.

When going to the Star Ferry it is right there.

Nice tower, not much more you can say.

“It's a nice clock, on a nice tower”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

It is what is it - a clock tower, but it did look mighty and quite nice at sunset with the brilliant skyline view behind. Was glad to see it.
