Tsim Sha Tsui known as a shopping districts but one thing that you must see in TST is the Old Clock Tower. The Old Clock Tower is the famous landmark in Tsim Sha Tsui. Behind the Clock is the HK Cultural Centre and museum. Try to go here by night and day.
The Clock Tower is a landmark in Hong Kong. It is located on the southern shore of Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon. It is the only remnant of the original site of the former Kowloon Station on the Kowloon-Canton Railway. Officially named Former Kowloon-Canton Railway Clock Tower, it is usually referred to as the Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower for its location.
The tower has been listed as a declared monument in Hong Kong since 1990.
The Clock Tower was part of the original Kowloon Canton Railway Station, and it came into operation in 1921. You can find the Colck Tower near the Star Ferry Concourse in Tsim Sha Tsui. Close to the tower, visitors can find Hong Kong Cultural Centre.
This tower was once part of the southern terminus of the Kowloon-Canton Railroad and built around 1922. The tower is 45 meters tall and is all that is left of the Railroad structure. The building was torn down in 1978, but built in Hung Hom (by the cross-harbour tunnel), Kowloon.
Nobody misses seeing this Clock Tower standing forlorn at Victoria Harbour. It has seen the rise of Hong Kong from backwater town to cosmopolitan city; from far flung British imperial outpost to special territory status within the Chinese yoke.
There ya go. I attached a picture of it. You could actually hit 3 other landmarks when you come to where the clock tower is. The star ferry, the observatory and the Avenue of the stars. Everything is in Tsim Sa Tsui East, Kowloon
We went to HK during Chinese New Year and one of the most beautiful shows ever is the Fireworks at the Clock Tower
It is not only the Fireworks themselves that are beautiful but also the way the local people lives it.
You have to hear the Ooohhh! and Aaah! and the cheering to understand how much Chinese people love fireworks !!
It was a very enjoyable experience despite the rainy night and the crowds and the umbrellas hiding the sights at times.
One of my most beautiful souvenirs of Kowloon.
The Clock Tower itself is an historical landmark. It was built in the early years of the 1900s and it is the last remains of the Kowloon-Canton Railway Station which was the Asian terminal of the Orient Express. London.
This clock tower is a bizarre remnant of Kowloons old railway station, and is all that is left of it. The train station has no moved, and the harbour front is hot property. If you are at the Star Ferry terminal on Kowloon, you can't miss it (if you step back from the ferry terminal building to look at it, the clock is on your left.
Our first stop in Kowloon was the somewhat-famous clock tower near the water. The clock tower was built in 1915 at the end of the Kowloon-Canton Railway. It took a lot of effort by the Hong Kong Heritage Society to save this landmark.
This is all that remains of the Kowloon-Canton Railway Terminal which was demolished in 1978. The clock tower was built in 1915 and the clock itself began operating in 1921. It is a pretty building amidst all the new towering buildings of Hong Kong.
Part of the original Kowloon-Canton Railway, it was built in 1915. This tower stands as a striking reminder of Hong Kong's Colonial past. It elegently adorns the surrounding waterfront promenade and park.
With its classical design in red brick and granite, the 45-metre Tower is a reflective reminder of those Colonial times. But over many years it had far greater significance for millions of Chinese for whom the former terminus was the final stop on their train journeys from villages in their homeland to new lives either in Hong Kong or by ship to foreign destinations overseas. Now the site of the historic railway station is occupied by the futuristic Hong Kong Cultural Centre.
This qualifies as a "Must See Activity" because as you get off the Star Ferry, it's kind of hard NOT to miss it. So, it's more like, you have no choice but to see it.
Be that as it may, I still had to take a picture of it because I did hear about it somewhere. If you ask me, it's just another tower... with a clock on it.
The Clock Tower, the former terminus of KCRC, is a classic landmark of Tsim Sha Tsui, though there are lots of other landmarks around.
It's a good place for taking pix especially at night. Don't miss it!
You can see this from a far if you'll be visiting the Victoria Harbour. It's near the Star Ferry concourse in Tsim Sha Tsui..I read that its a landmark from the Age of Steam, where when trains arrived with passengers who had set off from London weeks before on the worlds' longest railway journey. It is also a part of the original Kowloon-Canton Railway Station and was completed during the early 20th century...
You will notice this one in the Canton Street where the biggest shopping area is located! Can't get off my eyes in this place;-)
The Clock Tower is 44 metres high and sits on the harbourside of the Cultural Centre. It was built in 1915 at the terminal station of Kowloon - Guangzhou railway. When the railway station was shifted in 1975, this Tower is the only remaining building.
