Victory Monument - Bangkok ThailandVictory monument is located in Ratchathewi district, at the center of a traffic circle at the intersection of Phahonyothin Road, Phaya Thai Road, and Ratchawithi Road.
Be it in a taxi, on the Skytrain or just wandering around, the chances are that you will come across this military symbol.
The victory it refers to is a very brief skirmish in 1940 which Thailand had with the colonial French in Indo China, now known as Vietnam.
The monument, built in 1941, is Western in its design and features an obelisk surrounded by five statues representing the army, navy, air force, police and civil administration.
Nowadays the Victory Monument is the scene of many of Bangkok's notorious traffic jams, so by far the easiest way to see the VM is to take the BTS Skytrain to the station of the same name, on the Sukhumvit line.
