Was a land mark in HKG, yet it just a clock tower on your way to star ferry / avenue of stars. I really do not know about the story behind / archaeological value, but as a land mark, people used to get a pic here.

This is one historical site in Kowloon. It holds a special place in my heart. This used to be the train station with the main post office next door. Used to come here with my dad regularly picking up mail from his mail box there many many years ago. Now, the train station and the post office are both gone... More

This is the best place to hang out, chill and watch laser-water show at night. There is a beautiful vegetation around and it is a good experience to walk near the dock. Tehere are so many street singers and performers around mostly at nights. it is a good idea to hang out with friends and take couple photos...

Breathtaking view from the adjacent terrace at night! This is one thing you should not miss, one of the views that left a trace in my mind, just like the first time I saw Manhattan's skyline, or Singapore's. Get there in the evening, to see the light from the skyscrapers reflected in the water. Whether you are alone or with... More

Just landed in the afternoon, so we walked around our stay in Tsim Sha Tsui area. We went to 1881 and continued walking to harbor, visited this Clock Tower, take a seat enjoying the sea. Then continued walking to Harborcity to have lunch. Not much visitors near Clock Tower in the month of December, weather was quite cold and windy.

You can go to Former Kowloon-Canton Railway Clock Tower by taking MTR Tsim Sha Tsui (Exit E). The clock tower itself looks interesting and classic because of its red brick and granite tower. We were there during Hong Kong Pulse 3D Light Show and it was really amazing. You couldn't imagine just a simple clock tower can excite you. Anyhow,... More
