It is located very close to "Pasar Atas" in where you can find many shops that offers Minangkabau's handicrafts. From clothes, hijab, crafts, to weaving or "songket". And you can sit in the park surrounding this clock .. perhaps to watch the sunset would be nice if not raining..

I dont know what so special about this clock tower,it's just an ordinary clock tower located at the centre of the city of Bukit Tinggi.Lots of locals gather here,perhaps because it is close to a market.

This is a must visit tends to be very crowded at times. Right in front of the Clock Tower is a mall where you can buy clothes etc. Horse carriage ride is also available in front of the Clock Tower.
