My driver dropped me off. I walked a 360 around the monument. Not ONE person was on that sidewalk???? I guess it's so busy with cars people just stay on the perimeter. It's a beautiful monument and it's been the meeting place for people from all over to meet up with a native Thailander. Neat!!!!!

OK place to take a selfie. You can't go near it as it is surrounded by a roundabout. There is a footbridge which you can use to take a good picture of the monument.

As from title, this place is mostly for the ladies. Ladies who want to get clothing from street fashion to formal wear. This will be a good place to go to. Make ups are also available here. Right opposite is the victory monument. Nice scenery if you come during the evening.

I'm sure there's some history to the monument that I don't know about but there's nothing really here and you can't walk up to it hence the busy roundabout All the surrounding area is great though with food and shopping centers with cheap stuff

Erected in 1940's to commemorate the Thai victory in the Thai French war over France's occupation of its colonies in Asia. There are military statues at the base of the monument, but the volume of traffic can make it a challenge to get to. There are great views of the monument from the Victory Monument Sky Train Station. From here... More

This is a great monument to visit in Vientiane. This monument is in the city centre. Gives you great views of the city from top floor. No fee is payable to see this monument.

Here is one of hub of Bangkok buses. You can go to almost another area in Bangkok from here. There is BTS (sky train) station near the monument. Just walk 5 minutes from BTS victory monument station, you will arrive nice monument that is victory monument.

The area looks decent, but if you're looking for good shopping or anything special, this isn't it. (Seemingly) Mostly a hangout for teenagers.

In the midst of Bangkok’s steamy traffic stands a tall needle-pointed concrete obelisk of European design that raises more questions than get answered. Thailand’s Victory Monument, or Anu Saowari Chai Samoraphum (or just Anu Saowari for short) is situated in one of the busiest and most important traffic circles in Bangkok. However, very few people actually know what victory the... More
