This monument looks quite impressive however it was recommended to us by the Concierge at the hotel & unsure why other than from a patriotic point of view. It’s a big monument on a very busy intersection so you can’t get too close, there are...More

If you go to the Grand Palace or Khaosan road you probably will not miss this monument. It is in the middle of the wide Democracy Road and although impressive not really worth a special visit.

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,
it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn
the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and
most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to
this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most
spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to
