The Sungai Petani Clock Tour, also called the Lim Lean Teng Clock Tower, is the most recognisable icon of the town of Sungai Petani. Located along Jalan Ibrahim, the clock tower was erected by early 20th century Penang millionnaire Lim Lean Teng to commemorate the Silver Jubilee (25th anniversary) of the marriage, in 1893, of King George V, then Prince George Frederick Ernest Albert the Duke of York, to Princess Victoria Mary of Teck, who became his consort with the title Queen Mary.
It was completed in 1920, over a year after the jubilee celebrations.The entrance to the new Sungai Petani Railway Station, which was completed in 2015 for the KTM Electric Train Service, is located in front of the clock tower.
The major of Sungai Petani is a clock tower on the main street, Jalan Ibrahim. The cock tower was built in 1936. It is 12.1 m in height. It is topped by a dome-shaped and gold coloured structure. The tower was a present from Lim Lean Teng and George V and Queen Mary to commemorate the Silver Jubilee.
Pantai Merdeka is a waterfront attraction located at Kota Kuala Muda, about 30km from Sungai Petani. The main attraction of this place would be its natural beauty. If you are looking for a place to stay for the night, there are a few chalets around including Pantai Merdeka Resort. It will takes about a 45-minutes drive from Sungai Petani to Pantai Merdeka Beach.
