Very interesting to see this monument, which is in the centre of a large road intersection. The monument is enormous and there are gardens surrounding it however, it’s very hard to get to because of all of the roads converging and the heavy traffic. There are very good street markets surrounding the area where you can enjoy food and view the monument from the distance.

Very poignant monument situated in the middle of a large busy roundabout, not much you can do there do to the location.

One to tick off the sight seeing list

The Monument is not quite on most visitors’ list of must-see but is definitely visible and imposing! We made a trip here which is few stations away from the Chatuchack Weekend Market, the same Metro Line.
A decorated garden in the centre of a big vehicular roundabout, the central obelisk-shaped monument is frequently used in the West for national and military memorials. It is shaped more a sword-like, like a few bayonets clasped together. .At a lower portion stood 5 statues, representing the formation of army, navy, air force, police, and civilian population. Unfortunately, there was gate and it was locked, also crossing over from either side of roads seems challenging so we did not manage to take a closer look. Only at the overhead connecting bridge, onboard BTS and on the ground to admire the awe from a distance. There is a market near to the station, here we took a break and try out a Royal Thai puff + local thai tea!

Thailand was the only country in Southeast Asia not to be occupied during the second world war but it wasn't totally uninvolved in the conlict. It did fight a war against the (by-then) Vichy-controlled French and managed to regain some previously lost territory in Indochina. And that's the whole point of this monument that stands in the middle of a roundabout. From afar, it looks like an obelisk, but up close, it's really five connected bayonets connected in the middle. Surrounding the central obelisk at its base are five statues representing the army, air force, navy, police and civilians.

Is it worth getting a close-up look? In my opinion, probably not unless one is a strong Thai history bufff. The monument's most easily observed from the airconditioned comfort of a BTS train (Sukhumvit line) - it'll be on the left if heading north, or on the right side if heading south.

Had a 8 hour layover @ BKK in the evening and took the ARL train and BTS (61B total) to Victory monument just because it was around 30 minutes. Took me awhile to find the boat noodle restaurant Baan Kuay Tiew Ruathong. The boat noodles were fantastic and cheap 13B each, but was underwhelmed with the area as it's not particularly outstanding in any way for shopping, walking or sight seeing. Should have spent an extra 15 minutes and went to
Talad Rot Fai Train Night Market Ratchada on the ARL and MTS trains.

Although a large monument, it is set within a large roundabout and feels an awkward place to walk to. The monument was dressed with flowers when visited in February and it also had photo images of the king and Queen. It can be viewed from the Sky Train too!

We were staying in the area... It's not really a special site to pay a visit to.
I wouldn't book accommodation in this area again as there wasn't much going on in the evening.

Extremely busy and large roundabout which is dark and chaotic by night, making this an intriguing area to explore.
