  • Being well traveled we were expecting "Disney over the top." Instead, we saw different colored lights on a fixed ornate clock. The first time we smiled. The second time we knew we loved this wonderful...  more »
  • Stay for the light show. Looks nice. It is beside the Saturday Night market so worth to pass by and take a look.  more »
  • Nothing very difficult in cycling, the city of Chiang Rai is very accessible and this great clock is located to the North on a round point. Watch out for the photo there fiddling with the wires. Enjoy the world traveling your life. Olivtrotter..

  • 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
  • Nice area in Chiang Rai. Many bars and small restaurant around. It is also near open shopping street.
  • Very nice view to look at night. There are bars around where you can grab a beer.
  • Worth a visit during the evening when it's dark, if you're in the area.
