Jubilee Clock Tower, George Town

(300+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
For a reminder of Malaysian colonial heritage, check out Jubilee Clock Tower, built in 1897 to commemorate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee. It is crafted in an ornate Moorish style and is 18 m (60 ft) tall--one imperial foot for each year of Victoria's reign. The tower leans slightly to one side as a result of Japanese bombing during World War II. Standing tall in the middle of a busy city intersection, the structure remains  an authentic reminder of bygone times.

  • Take a free bus and just sit and relax to see hystorical clock tower. Dont forget to prepare your camera to shoot the beautiful photos. This is a good idea I think.

  • A iconic clock tower at the proximity of Fort Cornwallis. Great place to stop by for a shortwhile before proceeding to other places of attractions nearby.
  • A Malaysian monument commemorating Queen Victoria's 60th year wearing the crown. It stands tall right outside Fort Cornwallis. A typical tourist attraction, but if you're into architecture and history, you can find some proverbial hidden gems.
