    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.

    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
