Be sure to take a look and photo of the Drum Tower during the day and at night too. It is located in a great spot for photos.

When buying your tickets for this site buy the ticket for the bell tower aswell as it is cheaper when buying together at either bell or drum tower. They are within a 5 mins walk of each other and you don't need to be physically fit to climb up the few flights of stairs.

There are food and souvenir stalls in the square. Also a park with flowers. It's close to the Bell Tower Square, so basically, a nice walking area with shops.

A great view from the street. Sadly it rained heavily. Would love to go back to get up close. Also a night visit should be great as it is all floodlit.

The Drum Tower building itself was impressive, but the cultural entertainment inside was even better. Loved seeing the dancers and hearing the music played by culturally costumed musicians.

The tower affords a generous view over the old part of the city - within the original walls. Don't miss the array of drums outside.

Very clean, choice shopping, some sidewalk music performances. Easy access to Muslim street at Drum Tower. Beautiful but small adjacent park.
