Chiang Rai Clock Tower

The Chiang Rai Clock Tower is one of the provinces most unique attractions. This elaborate clock stands out thanks to its golden structure and unique artistry.

The clock is the brainchild of renowned Thai artist Chalermachai Khositpipat and was launched in 2008 by His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

Chiang Rai Clock Tower, Light Show Times & Location, Thailand

The clock stands out thanks to its unique design and visitors will recognise a similar design on the famed White Temple which is located south of Chiang Rai. This is because the same designer and architect built these two structures.

The clock tower was constructed in the central district and doubles as a roundabout. The clock tower stands out during the day with is vibrant gold colour and entertains at a whole new level each evening as there is a light projection show which occurs at 7pm, 8pm and 9pm each evening. The glorious array of laser lights and accompanying sounds in the background of whizzing motorbikes, speeding tuk-tuks and cars is a must-experience.

If you would like to enjoy this treat the Thai way, make sure to get to the intersection of Thanon Jet Yot and Thanon Baanpa Pragarn. Make sure to visit during the day so that you can appreciate the artistic detail of this magnificent clock tower as well at night for the light show.
