Democracy Monument, Bangkok

(2.7/5 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.

  • This is what word of mouth other people has the gateway to Khao San Road, has become a landmark. It is OK if you get down so you can see if you were riding on the bus. From Khao San Road roughly 10-15 minutes and will be. Just what is something that you would go all the way to not very much.

  • "Come back to Khao San Road-" and is like a door I think. Suddenly they are ready when the democracy monument, came back on the bus, get off. One to go? Asked to those interested in the history of Thailand, a must-see spot for everything? Is the history or Thailand for now is a landmark for travellers enjoy get off Khaosan arrival from Bangkok city centre.

  • It is a round point with sculptures from stones in the Center. Not great interest. Most beautiful night of days. Takes a few minutes to see this roundabout and these sculptures.

  • 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.
