Near theGrand Palace and National Museum. Not worth stopping but you will probably see it from the taxi.

Stone throw from busy Khaosan road, this good looking monument, not opened for public, only accessible from outside, is to pay respect for abstract idea of democracy.

This imposing monument is in a busy roundabout near Khao San Road. It commemorates the 1932 Revolution that turned Thailand into a constitutional democracy. A nice photo stop.

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.

Banglamphu
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
