The Thai government, under the premiership of General P. Pibunsongkram, had the Victory Monument erected in 1941 in honor of the heroic acts of soldiers, policemen and civilians who died during the dispute between Thailand and France over the border between Thailand and Indochina.
Although you may pass Victory Monument
several times during your visit to Bangkok, there are no major attractions or
major shopping centers near this spot, but of course there are shops and there
is a market, like everywhere else. It is also a major bus station, so it can be
a good place to change bus or to get into the skytrain.
