Democracy Monument, Bangkok

(2.8/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Built to commemorate the 1932 Siamese revolution, Democracy Monument serves as a public monument featuring four towering wings and a central pedestal holding a copy of Siam’s first constitution. Look for bas-reliefs on the wings that depict the soldiers, police, and civilians who propelled the revolution. Also notice the 75 cannonballs around the base of the monument that signify the Buddhist era. Visit in the evenings for especially nice photo ops. Democracy Monument is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Bangkok Edition.

  • Located in the center of Bangkok cultural area. Easily access to many tourist attraction places : The Grand Palace, Wat pra kaew, Wat Pho, Kaosarn Road, and etc. Nice Place to stay.
  • Personal reason to love this monument. It has long history and is a good representation of the fight for people freedom.
  • One of the most famous sightseeing spot Shold come when visiting BKK
  • Historical place in Bangkok. I don't think they allow access to the site. You are able to view from afar at the BTS walkways.
  • A beautiful grand monument located right in the middle of the town! It's definitely worth visiting once as this is the symbol of democracy in Thailand. Read Wikipedia for more information about what does each part of the monument means.
