I guess no trip to Chiang Rai is complete without a look at the clock tower, it's probably one of the most photographed attractions in the area, if not the world! The show is on at 7, 8 and 9pm every evening, but if you're serious about taking artistic shots maybe arrive a bit early so you are in front... More

Just a normal, small but colorful (night) landmark aka round-about. Time to spend here, 2 minutes. It's pretty near Night Bazaar (less than a 10 minute walk) so you can consider hopping over to take a look. (I used Night Bazaar as a center point because it easier to orientate from there)

I found myself spending New Year's Eve in Chiang Rai. There was a great show centered around the clock tower and area. The streets were packed by mostly local people. I saw very little tourist in the area. They had a couple stage shows going on and lots of food, drinks and vendors everywhere. Highly recommend a trip for New... More

You can see the clock tower by the roadside. It's just a normal landmark, nothing special. Lightshow starts at 7pm,8pm, and 9pm

Mesmerizing artifact in the middle of the main drag. One can sit for a while and just trip out on the changing colors.

This tower is expecially nice at night, as the colours permanently change. You can sit in one of the restaurants nearby and watch it. And it's free!

Hit it up at 7, 8 or 9 pm for a wonderful light and music show. It is rather spectacular and I wonder how much it costs them to keep it going nightly.

This amazing clock tower is situated right in the heart of Chiang Rai city at a main roundabout adjacent to the coffee bars and local restaurants. This tower was designed by the same artist that built the White Temple and its all guilded in gold leaf. The main attration of this clock is that at 8pm each night it comes... More

We stopped and took a quick photo as we left Chiang Rai, you couldn't leave without getting a photo of it.

It is hard to find, but it is interesting place in the town of Chiang Rai. Time to visit - during light show.
