  • A nice arena like place. Wide gallery like steps to sit on, relux and catch the sun. The Clock Tower itself is rather small. But the surrounding area works as a central square for Thimpu. The fairs and exhibitions might reduce the appeal of the tower some what, but an integral part of Thimpu city life. And most important fact for the tourists is, all the budget hotels, restaurants and gift shops are near the Clock Tower.
  • Open place... decorated, clean and beautiful... coffee shop, restaurant around there... there is a clock tower (squared shaped tower with four clock in four sides in the top of the tower)...
  • A famous spot. The clock tower centre
  • Nice place.
  • The last day of the 2006 international volunteers were dispatched with colleagues as singing. Cultural events such as concerts or trade fair is being utilized as a space with, funny.
