When you come down from the BTS from Siam there is a road name Rachawithee road on the left.When you climb the overhead opposite of the hospital you can find a lots of pharmacy.Some are cheaps and some expensives.There is a shop crowded with customer inside mostly Thai citizen is the cheapest in Bangkok.The Name is Rachaithee Pharmacy No.419/7,you can get even the rare medicine which the hospital in Bangkok prescribe.Some shop will; ask to come nextday but for this shop they have every medicine immediately and cheaper than other shop.

This is a great place! I wonder why no one ever mention nor recommend this place to shop!If not for the fact that I stayed at their nearby hotel, I wouldn’t even discover this place! This place is not too far from tourist destinations such as platinum mall or pratunam and yet this place has what those places have! There’s a shopping mall beside Victory Monument BTS and there is a linkway connecting the BTS to the shopping centre. Completely sheltered. There are various street vendors selling snacks ranging from fruits to sausages, fried crickets, etc. there’s also massage places nearby at 200 baht. Must explore freely at your leisure time.

There’s a duck noodle and chicken rice stall which opens from morning till afternoon. Do try them out! The food taste fantastic! Not your usual kind of food you would try in Bangkok. There is a long stretch of vendors selling female clothes, food, slippers, etc along the way. Just follow the track of the BTS. Walk further up the street and it will lead you to another 2 mini air conditioned shopping centres nearby. There’s still constant crowd in these places but maybe not as many tourists as you might expect compared to pratunam.

Feel free to check out their SAXOPHONE Pub which is highly recommended on tripadvisor but I felt that the food there was soso.I ordered their fried fish and green curry chicken. Their green curry chicken was horrible. Gee, they added a lot of salty eggs and some other salty stuff which I can’t really identify. However, their cocktails are not bad. Interior pub is dark and the music was average, perhaps I’m not really into pub music.

Generally, this victory monument place is a MUST GO!

If you happen to drop by the victory monument for any reason, do not miss out the boat noodles. It is located next to a small canals, where you will see 5-10 stretch of shops by the canals claiming to be selling the best boat noodles in town. If you don’t read Thai, then you’d best trust your instincts and walk in to one of the premise and pray for the best experience. Hint? Go with the crowd. The workers are dressed in purple, pink and neon green, with a few other shops wearing almost similar colours. We chose the pink one, and had air-conditioning just like most others.

Most of the staffs do not speak english so go for the menu and pick either pork or beef served with dark broth. Each bowl comes with 2-3 mouthful of noodles and you'd see the locals ordering up to 5-10 bowls at each time! Spicy, robust, delicious and CHEAP. Every bowl goes for 10 baht/RM1/USD0.30, and drinks of bottled cola was about the same price or you could get a cola for free if you ordered up to 20 bowls which is a pretty easy task if you come in a group. :)

VICTORY MONUMENT BOAT NOODLES
Ratchawithi 10, off Thanon Phahon Yothin,
North of Victory Monument.
Take the BTS and stop at Victory Monument BTS station, and walk northbound towards the monument itself. Once passing the monument, look down to the streets and find this stretch of stalls lining the canal.

We went to Bangkok many times. Since we were staying near Victory Monument in October, we decided it was a good time for us to head over to Ratchawithi Road for lunch at the famous restaurant serving boat noodles. It was our 1st time experience. Easy to find.
We chose the first stall along a canal. Servers wearing purple T-shirts. There are plenty of indoor and air-conditioned rooms along the alleyway. We ordered rice vermicelli and kway teow with beef and pork, topped off with fresh herbs in miniature bowls. Also ordered side dishes, drinks etc...
The bowl's smal size is the unique selling point of boat noodle alley in Bangkok.
We saw locals order dozens of bowls at a time, which were stacked high on the tablets for photo taking.

It's really a must go place for boat noodle. I love the stretch of restaurants that sell really cheap and nice boat noodle. Moreover, the overhead bridge makes it easier for you to walk from BTS Station to the boat noodle restaurant. There are also shops around where they sell clothings.

This was just round the corner from our Century Park Hotel. This is a very busy place for shopping, eating, park, tram station, bus station, tuk-tuks, taxis, etc. making access to Bangkok easy and particularly cheap compared to other cities. It appeared like this was the center of Bangkok, the place is always buzzing. It has a vibrant night life. There is a night market as well. Lot of cool things to do and see. Check it out. Have Fun!

The monument is not a destination or a site worth seeing as it’s just a statue in the middle of a traffic circle.

HOWEVER, right there on the east side of the round-about are an abundance of food stalls and street food vendors. A great place to find cheap eats! And if it’s too hot, there are old shopping malls to pop in for the air conditioning. The area is easily accessed by SkyTrain – perhaps this accessibility has something to do with the large crowds on the elevated walkway.

The offerings around the monument are what bumped up my rating.

Victory Monument itself isn't the coolest thing in the world, but the surrounding area is definitely worth checking out. The monument is a giant statue surrounded by a traffic circle commemorating a small victory in a little pickle the Thais had with the French back in the early 40's.

Get off the Sky Train at the "Victory Monument" stop and as you head toward the exit, you will see the massive monument. Looking out at it, you will see that the area is filled with markets. For those who like to shop and bargain with the Thai market crowd, this is a great spot for you. You can spend hours going in and out of alleys filled with random trinkets and different foods to try. It's a pretty interesting place. There is also a big shopping mall in the area for those who are into that.

The real gem is located directly behind the statue. You can actually stay above the street the whole time and when you area ready to go down into the madness, just go down the stairwell. The area is incredibly well known for "Guay Teow Reua" - Boat Noodles.

The restaurants are all located right along the canal - where the boat noodles get their name. They are served in these tiny bowls in almost bite-sized portions. They are served this way because when the Thais used to eat them on the boats, they needed small servings so the soup would not spill out of their bowls as the boat rocked.

The soup has Sen Lek (small, white noodles), pork balls, pork strips, and a bit of pigs blood (giving the broth a brown, murky color). Don't let the pigs blood throw you off, as it is delicious. There are a ton of herbs and spices in their as well, so I found that you didn't need any condiments to flavor it up. Some versions can get spicy, so just beware.

Victory Monument is a great spot for Thai Culture. Go see it!

We came here to catch a minivan to kanchanaburi. There are a lot of people in the evening and some shopping malls around. River park food court is a "must avoid at all costs" place. We had terrible food there.
