Clock Tower, Chiang Rai

3.1
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).

  • Basically the main attraction of Chiang Rai together at the night market. Is a tower and clock, Golden, full of decorations in the middle of a busy street full of smog. Worth a picture.

  • Beautiful action. A good start in the evening before dinner. The action begins at 19.00. Near night market and food court.

  • This must be one of the most hideous pieces of art I've ever seen, but you really shouldn't miss it.... All shiny gold and so richly decorated it makes your head spin. On top of that, at 7, 8 and 9 pm...  more »

  • Arrived at around 7:30 but they didn't have our reservation from Agoda even though I had a reservation #. The staff at night speaks 0 english. I had to talk on the phone to the owner who spoke a little English but said they didn't have a room. They ended up finding a room for us a few blocks a way but it wasn't very nice and was more a dorm style room for our family. Not great experience.
