THE CLOCK TOWER OF CHIANG RAI


This is a prominent landmark in Chiang Rai town. People came here to get themselves photographed with the Clock Tower painted in gold, and that was all. Under the bright sun, it sparkled from afar and foreigners would be amused by its beauty.
















Once, on my way walking back to the hotel at 9:00 p.m., I suddenly saw the tower was much brighter, being lit up with different colourful lights accompanied by a loud music. Some people were busy recording the light-and-music display and I spontaneously did the same. I guess I was lucky to be there at the right time to observe this special moment which should be one of the attractions of the town.
