Victory Monument

Monument in Siam Square, Pratunam, Phloen Chit & Ratchathewi

This obelisk was built by the then military government in 1941 to commemorate a 1940 campaign against the French in Laos. Today the monument is primarily a landmark for observing the social universe of local university students and countless commuters. It’s worth exploring the neighbourhood around Victory Monument, which is reminiscent of provincial Thai towns.
