  • If you need to pick a central meeting spot, this would be the place. Yes, it’s rather large but you can pick the cIock or even the amphitheater steps and I’m sure you and your friends will easily meet...  more »
  • Its like a landmark at Thimpu. Stand near the Tower and take a 360 view video of Thimpu City Center. Though this Clock Tower is small but its beautiful.  more »

  • Clock Tower is something which is called life. You will be amazed when you will go there because there are lots of activities are happening there simultaniously. There are various kind of shops ,there are vendors, there are many kinds of game and also many kinds of cultural activities. There is a clock tower in the middle of the field and around it various kinds of activities happening. Bhutan is a very peaceful country and this kind of Clock Tower activities show us their activities towards their culture their thoughts and their setup. I think this is a place where you like to spend some moments with yourself!
  • Very nice and classy place. We chilled here late evenings and it was superb. Nothing much to see here from a touristy perspective. Just head out with friends / gf and relax talking and soaking in the atmosphere.
  • The clock square is centrally located in Thimpu. In the evening tourists flock this area and presents a good opportunity to make new friends
  • Beautifully designed clock tower. But it's not well maintained. Many corners have lot of litter which is against Bhutanese culture. People have made many spots dirty by spitting betel nut leaf (doma). Area has lot of good coffee shops & restaurants. Overall a decent place to hangout in evening
  • Nice place to road around. All branded stores around here. Peaceful area and humble people
