China Expat & Travel Blogger. ATTRACTIONS & THINGS TO DO IN CHINA. See My Fun TRAVEL Adventures in China!
I love traveling to Hong Kong; heck, I’ve been 3 times already since I moved to China as an ESL Teacher and still can’t get enough of it. And one of the peculiar things I love about Hong Kong is, well, visiting its Clock Tower. I know, strange right?
Hong Kong’s Clock Tower is a popular landmark located on the Victoria Harbour boardwalk near the Tsim sha Tsui Ferry Terminal. At 44-meters high—51-meters if you included the 7-meter lightning rod at its top—the tower serves as a cultural and historical iconic attraction and an easily recognizable meeting point for tourists in the area.
I love visiting Hong Kong’s Clock Tower each time I make a trip to the region, mostly because the Clock Tower area is decoratively lined with palm trees and, in addition to the spectacular view of Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong Island’s skyline right at its doorstep, makes way for a beaming picturesque environment that is perfect for a little spiritual detoxing. Oh yeah.
During some holidays and special events, travelers to the Clock Tower can catch sight of decorative and illuminating objects such as Chinese lanterns, which are typically arranged around the tower in commemoration of Chinese New Year.
Lastly, the Clock Tower is also a popular area to watch the Symphony of Lights showing in the evening.
Directions to the Clock Tower in Hong Kong: Hop on an MTR Subway Line to Tsim Sha Tsui Staion. Exit E. Follow the signs.
