Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower

Tsim Sha Tsui area

Above: Tsim Sha Tsui clock tower located at the southern tip of Kowloon.

Built about a century ago, this clock tower in Tsim Sha Tsui was not torn down back in the 1970's when the train station was moved to Hung Hom. At a time there were tours going up the tower, but unfortunately no more. (2007.12.31)

The clock still keeps accurate time.

To reach it, an easy way is to take the MTR and get off at Tsim Sha Tsui station. Take exit E. Once you are above ground, walk south along Nathan Road until Salisbury Road. Turn right (west) till you reach the Star Ferry Pier at the waterfront. Walk left. Once you have passed the pier area, the clock tower is in front of you. (See alternate route via Star Ferry.)
