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.

  • A monument to mark a historical moment for democracy. At the interchange of a main road leading to many POIs in the area. Khao San road is nearby. 
  • A small monument located on a busy road. The bad side of this monument is, that there is nothing much around the area. It is exactly like you see on the picture, and that's it. 
  • Goods after sunset there and the whole road to the monument and back away true impressively lit. The Memorial itself is large and conspicuous. If you visited the Khao San road worth to look at times past.

  • 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.
  • Beautiful and crowded
  • This perfect place to find all the other great places nearby - If you look down the middle of longest stretch you can see it leads to Khausan rd 200 metres on right or go a further 250 metres there is the royal palace straight ahead. Alternatively take a while in the McDonald's directly on the monument and watch the huge traffic artery that feeds Bangkok.
  • A beautiful monument which serves as a landmark for navigating to other parts of town. It is very well lit at night and great for taking photos.
  • Cool but not so spectacular
