Clock Tower, Chiang Rai

3.6
Admire the highly elaborate and intricate carving work of Chiang Rai's golden Clock Tower. Swirling, twisting patterns festoon every available bit of surface. At night the clock tower is illuminated with multicolored lights and accompanied by musical chimes. Arrive in the evening to see one of three short light and sound shows (approximately six minutes long).

  • Right smack of the city... often treated as the centre of Chiangrai maps as well. Just plays music and changes colour every hour in the evening... that's all.  more »
  • I did not like the way this place was built, was quite an eyesore. The whole street around it is covered in that garish gold. I would say avoid it, but you really can't  more »
  • As a tourist attraction can't find you great charm. It is a very ornate, gilded clock on central street. The antique clock is not far away, near a market.

  • A popular landmark when asking directions. An attractive clock tower with a modest light and music show at the top of the hour from 7 pm to 10 pm every night.
  • Nice place especially between 7 and 10 pm, every full hour a coloured show with music starts 👍👍👍
  • Awesome clock tower. There is a short light show. Really enjoin it.
  • It's amazing, landmark of chiang rai
  • The golden clocktower, located where Thanon Jet Yot meets Thanon Baanpa Pragarn, is a work of art and tourist attraction in its own right. The structure serves as a traffic roundabout and whilst it is distinctive enough during the day, at 7, 8 or 9pm you’ll be treated to a light and sound show as the clock chimes the hour
