This was worth the effort to find. However the old clock tower was much more interesting and is also the Taiping tourist information centre, who were very helpful.

At that time of my visit, the tower is not showing any time at all. The tower is not even maintained well at all. As you can use, there are growth of green molds on the wall of the tower. Honestly, it is a waste...More

Located at centre of town so easy to access. A normal clock tower with a peculiar design. Did not spent much time here as we proceeded to our next destination after taking photos.

Unlike other famous town clock towers, the design is unusual. You probably won't be spending much time here except to take a quick photo.

The tower is right in font of the wet market beside the main road. However, the digital clock is no longer working. It is now just another abandoned landmark for the town.
