Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower is one of the famous landmarks and tourist attractions in Kowloon Peninsula. It reminds the Colonial Era in Hong Kong. The tower stands 44 meters and made out of granite and red bricks.

The Clock Tower is part of the old Kowloon-Canton Railway Terminal, which was constructed in 1913. However, the building of the station was demolished in 1978, leaving only the clock tower. In order to preserve the structure, the Hong Kong government proclaimed it as a “Declared Monument” in 1990. It is a type of order that preserves and protects historical structures, buildings and places.

Inside the Clock Tower is a wooden staircase being used to reach the top that overlooked the Victoria Harbor. Unfortunately, going up to the structure nowadays is not possible anymore for maintenance reasons. The area around this Victorian style clock tower is famous for light shows and events. It is also surrounded by palm trees and a very nice place to hang out and take photos while waiting for the Symphony of Lights which staged every night at 8:00 in the evening.

The Clock Tower  is located on the southern shore of Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon. It is near the Star Ferry Terminal and the Avenue of Stars.
