The square is beautiful especially at night when the Drum and Bell Tower are lit. There are lots of shops and restaurants nearby, and right outside the Muslim Quarter.

Pleasant square connecting to the Bell Tower, a large open space and shops off to the side so you aren’t crowded.

Just near the Muslim Quarter and the Bell Tower. Make sure you get there at night with all the lights on. Check the time for the performances and get there a little early to get a good spot. it's worth spending some time there.

Inside is a museum of the most amazing collection of art and old furniture that is exquisite. The drums have fascinating descriptions of their significance which is very interesting.

Great just to stroll down and see this. We went during golden week and it was crowded. It was lovely to see families eating and playing together. The lights gave a carnival atmosphere. Very beautiful

Beautiful pagodas best viewed with lit up at night. The square is bustling with vendors, shops, and restaurants. Great vendor lined streets to wander and wonder at the items offered for sale. Safe to walk at night.
