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.

  • Interesting monument in the city centre, makes it even more in the evening with the lighting, near other attractions!

  • Without more... The story that hides guess that you represent more for local people. But for tourists who pass through there you can avoid it completely.

  • big monument in the central Bangkok. I heard from local that it's often used as demonstration place. when i went there on August 6th 2017 it's decorated with many flowers. Near khaosan, golden mount, grand palace, and sanam luang.
  • Fantastic must see for any tourist in Thailand. Built in 1939 the monument and the extra wide street is meant to be Thailand version of the Champs-Élysées and the Arc de Triomphe
  • The best thing about this location is the excellent Thai restaurant on the ring road called Methavalai Sorndaeng. The food is of the highest standard and it's got a bit of a retro atmosphere with a resident classical pianist often there for the lunch session. This is also a favoured eating establishment for the Bangkok high society crowd.
  • Go during the day to check the several panels. Go during the night and watch it from across the street. The open view of the square is amazing.
  • Famous landmark in BKK. Many political activities happened here. Some nice Café and Restaurants nearby.

Where to stay in Bangkok

As a commercial, cultural, and tourist center, Bangkok offers a great diversity of accommodations. For long established and chain hotels, try Sukhumvit Road and the areas surrounding the central Siam Square, where budget and luxury rooms are available in abundance. If you are looking for the backpacker zone, head to Khaosan Road, where you'll find a wealth of inexpensive, simple accommodations surrounded by businesses tailored to traveler's needs. Consider staying at a guesthouse to gain a deeper understanding of Thai life.
