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.

This is a beautiful landmark of Hong Kong. I like that historical buildings or statues have a significance in this fast pace city.

Part of the early Colonial history of Kowloon. Great to see they have retained the clock Tower and opened it up for people to see and enjoy.

Was a land mark in HKG, yet it just a clock tower on your way to star ferry / avenue of stars. I really do not know about the story behind / archaeological value, but as a land mark, people used to get a pic here.

This is one historical site in Kowloon. It holds a special place in my heart. This used to be the train station with the main post office next door. Used to come here with my dad regularly picking up mail from his mail box there many many years ago. Now, the train station and the post office are both gone... More

This is the best place to hang out, chill and watch laser-water show at night. There is a beautiful vegetation around and it is a good experience to walk near the dock. Tehere are so many street singers and performers around mostly at nights. it is a good idea to hang out with friends and take couple photos...
