The Former Kowloon-Canton Railway Clock Tower is another landmark in Hong Kong. It is located on the southern shore of Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon and you can't avoid noticing it if you are taking one of the Star Ferries between Kowloon and Hong Kong Island.

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 前九廣鐵路鐘樓, it is usually referred to as the Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower 尖沙咀鐘樓 for its location.

The Clock Tower is built out of red bricks and granite, and it peaks at 44 meters, and is topped by a 7-metre lightning rod. You can reach the top of the tower using a wooden staircase but I didn’t try this. The interior of Clock Tower is usually open for visit, but it can sometimes be closed for maintenance.

The tower has been listed as a declared monument in Hong Kong since 1990
