프랑스와 태국 간의 전쟁에서 승리 기념을 위해 세운 탑인데, 길가다 보게 되어 이것이 무엇인가 보러 우연히 가게 된 곳이었어요. 태국의 역사를 안다면 참 의미잇는 탑이라 생각이 들더라구요. 전투에서 사망한 사람들의 이름을 새겨놨다고 하는데 보면서 많은 생각을 하게 되엇씁니다 . more »In commemoration of victory in the war between France and Thailand to top, to see what this is supposed to look down the street by chance was the place to go.

Victory Monument has long served as one of the busiest transportation hubs in Bangkok. Nearly all public buses and vans to the city’s outskirts as well as nearby beach towns leave from this area. Unlike Siam, also a major transport hub surrounded by glitzy shopping malls, Victory Monument is a popular hangout place for working-class Thais and those who can’t afford the high price tag of fine dining and brand-name luxuries. With two shopping malls surrounding Victory Monument and a night market starting from dusk onwards, there is always something to see here, including a movie theatre and karaoke. From the monument, walk slightly south to Soi Rang Nam and discover a whole range of shop-house eateries serving up tasty yet affordable food. For brand-name shopping or high-quality souvenirs, King Power Duty Free is your best bet.
We love the Victory Monument area of Bangkok. The monument itself is like a big road roundabout and if you are lucky you may catch a ceremony going on. The sky train gives excellent views of the monument (head for Victory Monument station) and from here you can catch taxis, tuk-tuks, buses and mini buses. There are market stalls selling an array of goods, food stalls and a couple of inexpensive malls all situated around the monument. Well worth a visit to see Bangkok in its full bustle!
