The clock tower standing 44 meters high and made of red bricks and granite blocks was completed in 1915 as part of the Kowloon Canton Railway Station. It is an interesting old piece of history where not a lot else remains and worth a look...More

It's nice to see a bit of Hong Kong's colonial past on the waterfront near the Ocean Terminal. Viewabke from land or harbor, you'll know that Kowloon was once British.

The clock tower is a brilliant reminder of the colonial past. It is both historically significant and architecturally stunning. Worth a visit once in the area.

Amid the modern flair of Tsim Sha Tsui, the old clock tower is a reminder of the colonial past. It formed part of the railway station to China. Although the station was demolished, the busy traffic remains till now. A good photo stop.

People say it's more than 100 years old. The clock tower is very near to the Victoria harbour. Very nice place to explore some history and take some memorable pics.

Great views of Victoria Harbor. There were a few street performers the day we went. I didn't see any public restrooms but there were lots os restaurants you could run into. Wish we would've gone back for the night light show.

We initially coulnd't tell if the clock tower was the original or a reproduction as it was in such excellent condition. It's worth a look at if you're in the region. We couldn't read the info on the plague as we visited in the dark...More

If you see this as just another clock tower, it's just okay; but if you realize how long it's been here, look at some old photos, and think about how they incorporated it into the modern architecture nearby, it's pretty amazing. It's definitely one of...More
