Nothing special but if you pass by anyway it is worth look! It is in the middle of the central roundabout of Chiang Rai, so it can be a bit crowdy.

If you go to see the clock tower it will put on a show at 8pm when it changes colors and plays music. The show repeats at 9pm. The two best times to see it.

It was cool to see, but we didn't stay for the whole show. It doesnt seem to be more than music and changing colors. While nice, that only kept our interest for a couple minutes. The best part was sitting to the side watching every other person hold out their camera, recording the show...

I expected more for this place. It is just a square where cars drive around and a clock with gold decorations. Nothing special

A first good experience to discover the white temple architect. You won't listen to the end, but it is funny.

The clock tower was designed by the well-known artist of Chiang Rai. The same artist who built Wat Rong Kun (White Temple). The clock look elegant but not fit along with the surrounding building. The city arranged to have kind of light and sound at the clock tower every early hour from 7-10 pm. It took less than 10 mins... More

The golden clock tower comes alive in the evenings with a show at 1900, 2000 and 2100. It's alright but no biggie. It's in the middle of town, not far from the night bazaar or bars.

The city itself is quite small, but this clock tower offers a really nice show. By 7, 8 and 9 p.m. the tower will turn into every color and a beautiful Thai music will play in the street. The show lasts about 15 minute, the street lights (beautiful Thai style) turn off when the show is about to start
