I would have given 5 start, if not for the rubbish that litters the area around the tower. The place is usually very crowded during holidays even until midnight. Honestly a bit difficult to enjoy the attraction with all the crowd, commotion and traffic jams nearby, but it is definitely a must go when visiting Bukittingi.

It is the landmark of Bukit Tinggi one can't miss if he is in the centre of the town. Around it there are people selling all kinds of things. The big daily market is just nearby. It is good to visit it at night too.

Jam Gadang is an icon for bukit tinggi city. It is located in the center of the town, many people come here especially in the evening. You can take picture then instantly printed. Many horse drawn carriages are ready to take you for city tour.

The heart of bukittinggi with everything around i e food, clothes, sovenier and of course the bendi (horse ride). The upper market and the side market during the day is the place you can get almost everything.

Bukittiggi is very well known of its Clock Tower as it s the only city in West Sumatra or probably in Sumatra with the old clock tower.The tower and the clock it self is very simple, but the Minangkabau style roof on the top make it unique. The tower is standing out as it is located in Upper Market.

Jam Gedang, the clock tower at the heart of Bukit Tinggi is a moderately sized structure with clockface. It is an historic construction in a part of the world where not much that is old survives. It is highly regarded by locals and definitely stands out compared to its surroundings. Around the tower are market stalls and a buzz of... More
