Even though this is only a clock tower, this is the icon of Bukittinggi. You can't enter the clock tower, but there's a lot of delicious food stalls and souvenir stores around this place. There's also a little mall a few meters from this place full of West Sumatra traditional clothes and hijabs.

This is the icon and must visit spot in Bukittinggi. The surrounding was changed a lot compare to 10 years ago and today has better environment. I like the view in the evening when the lamps illuminate this area and the tower.

Altough Padang is Capital City of West Sumatra Province, the landmark is still a few kilometers up nort from Padang. Located in Bukittinggi regency, stood tall the clock tower. Visitor always took a photo on this site.

The clock tower almost at center of the plaza, suronded by traditional market and modern mini market. As early as dawn and up until night, this place always full of people. Temperature relatively cold as 25 degree celcius, and much cooler when night and rainy.

We visited the famous white clock tower in Art Deco style with traditional Indonesian roof style in August 2019. It’s located in a pleasant area of Bukittingi, with:
- many horse drawn carts allowing to do sightseeing tours, which are highly recommended for families with kids!
- many small shops and colourful markets and sellers. Very pleasant area!!!

The trip to Bukittinggi is not complete unless you have visited this famous clock tower. This unique tower is the icon of this town located in the town square with buzzing crowd all time around the clock!

Jam Gadang is a city square in the heart of Bukittinggi. A number of restaurants, local stores, local food can be found here. Sianok Valley can be seen from here, the weather was definitely not as hot as Padang, the capital of West Sumatra Province. We came here in the afternoon to enjoy the scenery and take some photos. Since it's Sunday afternoon, it was quite crowded. Families, friends visited this place, sitting around chit-chatting, children running around. We also enjoyed live performance of a group coming from Padang just to entertain the crowds. The crowds got bigger at night to enjoy the live performance.

The very first time I am here a few years back and now...this place has really changed a lot. New building for Pasar Ateh Bukittinggi ready for opening soon. Jam Gadang is the most popular landmark of Bukittinggi. Now the market area is more organised and the surrounding area has more green than ever...nice spots for photos and cool place to relax after shopping. A must place for tourists who are looking for cheaper material and souveniers.

We went to this Clock tower known as Jam Gadang in the morning where there are not so many people and much comfortable to take photo. Nice view here.
