I like the way that the clock tower has been incorporated into the more modern structures, and it is nice that this older building has been preserved. This is the area with the best views for the skyline of Hong Kong, so is always crowded with tourists. Certainly worth a visit.

Nice that they have preserved the old Kowloon railway clock. Almost looks out of place among all the modern architecture. Still works! The promenade on the water front in front of the clock is one of the better places to see the symphony of lights display each night at 8PM

This is the best location in Hong Kong to view Hong Kong night in glance. Take note this area always crowded during night.

Once, a wise Indonesian man said that "A rich country is a country which appreciate its history" and Hongkong keeps its history through Clock Tower in the middle of this modern life.

The 300m Waterfront Promenade from the Intercontinental Hotel to the Star Ferry offers some of the best shots of the world famous Hong Kong Island skyline. Along the way, if the walker looks inland at all, they are likely to be distracted by the ski-jump architecture of the Cultural Center or the igloo shape of the Space Center. And so... More

Most people on the waterfront in Kowloon are looking across the water. This is a pretty good thing to look at on the Kowloon side. 1673.

If you are going by here I would recommend that you go at night, that way you can also get an incredible view of Hong Kong!

An iconic landmark of Hong Kong! Nearby is the jetty of another iconic Hong Kong ferry. Popular spot to view Hong Kong island.

The clock tower is part of the Kowloon Canton railway station, and is now the only structure remains. The railway station has completely been demolished and was moved to Hung Hom.
