This clock tower is dedicated to Mr.Atkinson, who passed away because of the tropical desease,he is only 28 at that time.His mother from ordered to built this tower in memoriam of his son.Altough the genuine material had already replaced,it still standing.We were lucky to hear the bell rang, on exactly 12 noon.Worth to visit because of its historical value.

The clock tower, although not the most impressive clock tower I have seen is worth a quick visit as from city centre would only set you back 15 minutes or so.

Free to look at, although is fenced off so you can't get right to the base. The best view was actually from the street just below as this is the side on which the clock faces sit.

Clock tower is also an important part of the Islands heritage and is one of those items which hopefully they will preserve over time.

When strolling around KK, having a quick stop at Atkinson Clock Tower is interesting. Unfortunately the tower itself is fenced and can not be climbed or accessed. That would have been nice. You won't need longer than 5 min.

This structure is one of the oldest in Kota Kinabalu( formerly Jesselton) since it was built in 1903 and survived the Second World War. Named after the first District Officer, Francis George Atkinson, it is made totally of wood and preserved with some alterations in its original state. It has since been taken over and managed by the State Musuem. It is worthwhile to make a brief stop over to witness a landmark that left some important part of history. It is just a short walk from the city center below the equally popular Signal Hill.
