Yes, it's a clock tower....Next!
OK so it changes colours in the light show, and they dim the strreetlighting and play awful music on a second rate PA system. The good points are there are 2 coffee bars and a bar/restaurant next to it.

“Light show on golden clock tower”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

What a load of rubbish, seriously though, the street lights go off, and the clock tower changes colour and a lotus flower comes up the centre of it with some tannoy elevator music. Save time and go to Blackpool illuminations instead, you won't have the kids nagging at you waiting for the time of the lights to start.

“Beautiful Golden Clock Tower”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

Using the clock tower as the center, it was easier for us to locate the masjid and Doi Chang Coffee house. The structure is beautiful!

“Visit in passing”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

The clocktower could be described in very blunt terms as a glorified round-about. It is very ornate, gold and somewhat unusual so do have a walk past it and get a photo, but its not a massive attraction so much as a cultural feature of the town.

“Not your ordinary clock tower: love it or hate it”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

We drove pass, had wanted to come back to watch the light show at 7 or 8 or 9pm but couldn't make it.

It is a grand structure built by the same artist behind White Temple. It is beautiful, but those who don't like it, you may find it gaudy with the gold color.

Worth checking out especially since it's located in the city centre.
