Wonderful clock tower. It's unique and be the signature of Chiang Rai. There are many restaurants and cafe around it, so you can chill out to wait for clock alarm.

Gaudy gold clock tower in the middle of town helps you find your way about. You cannot help but visit it, unavoidable.

Was told my my gf and her family that this was the 'big thing' to do at 8pm on a Chiang Rai night. Hmmmm, yeah, it's nothing to worry about missing. Yeah, it's cute, for about 13 seconds, and then you're left wondering where the next destination should be. If you're in the night market shopping then by all means,... More

I've been visiting Chiang Rai for years,yet didn't know about this sound and light show. It takes place every night at 7,8 and 9 pm.(times given by some other reviewers are incorrect) and lasts about 7 minutes. Well worth a visit. There are nice coffee shops nearby.

Most of the day it tells the time in the middle of a roundabout, but at 7 and 8 it comes to life with an amazing light and music show, to be missed on the way to barrab restaurant!

Quite beautiful, I'd give it that... But at 9pm it all lights up, music playing and stuff moving inside it (I didn't stay long enough to look carefully)... But like a fancy dukebox... Not my cup of tea for authenticity. You'll inevitably pass it on your way around Chiang Rai but don't go out of your way.

A must see if you are downtown in the evening as it is a spectacle on the hour at 6, 7 and 8 o'clock....great photos if you have a tripod. Some nice bars and restaurants to hang out in around the area.
