Democracy Monument, Bangkok Reviews

  • Biggest of huge temple complexes in and around Siem Reap. Restoration work is in progress. Friendly and nice people. Sunrise us an absolute must see. When you go ensure you have firm comfortable shoes, sun hat and water. It needs 2 to 6 hrs to do some justice. MUST SEE.

  • I enjoyed walking around this place at night more than during the day. I thought the lighting at night really made the monument look really beautiful. I only was able to look at it from a distance though because it was fenced off when I was there so you couldn't walk around inside the monument. I would have enjoyed being able to walk around closer.

  • Good to visit when you walk from the phanfa brigde to khao san road

  • Pretty impressive structure. Close to Khao San road. Unless you are really into history, I was not, it's just a good landmark to have. We stayed near this place. You will have to take a bus from Phaya Thaya station. Trust Google maps. We did in Thailand.

  • It's just a roundabout with a big concrete monument. Nothing special here. People probably give it a good rating because it is close to Khao San Road and don't leave the tourist path of BKK. I can name you 10 places more impressive than this one in Bangkok 99% of tourists will never lay eyes on. Might be worth one picture if you hapen to be there but nothing more.
