“Not just a clock tower...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2013

When in Chiang Rai, take the time (hah! sorry!) to see the clock tower. On the hour, from 19:00 there is a light show centred on the tower - it's only about 5 minutes long, but well worth it, especially if you relax in the wee restaurant beside the tower!

Get there at either 7PM or 8PM I'm not sure but may be every hour at night after 7PM and for 10 minutes the clock changes colour.

“Make Time For This”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013

This is an interesting attraction in Chiang Rai.
By day, this beautiful, golden timepiece, glistens in the sun and serves as a wonderful landmark. At 7pm, 8pm and 9pm each night, it puts on a marvellous light and music show to entertain both the young and the young at heart.
The locals are proud of their clock and so they should be. It’s colourful, amusing and best of all, it’s free.
If you can drag yourself away from the bars and the night market, for 8 minutes, go to the centre of the town and take in the show.

“It is a five minute show at night with lights and music”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

There is a VIP section within 150 meters of this Clock Tower.
You take a left at the clock tower and look for a big market on the right which is rather difficult to see if not searching; it is really big off of the street. You take a right at the clock tower and look to the left before the intersection for a bike rental with sound bikes.
