The monument shows us the two sisters: Ya Chan and Ya Mook. Standing in the heart of the busy street, it represents the struggles of the citizens of Phuket in rebuilding their homes and their lives after the Burmese invasion. I feel that they deserve...More

I first saw this monument when visiting in 1992. The minibus stopped for a few minutes and all passengers got to take a nice photograph. It was accessible back then. Now there are 3 lanes of traffic each side, the Thais manage to fit 4...More

This monument's story is most impressive, though the monument itself is a little underwhelming given the high regard of the women it celebrates. It's actually a large roundabout and is more a landmark than a sightseeing location. Sometimes closed east/west, it's a pretty frustrating exercise...More

What is there to see? It is difficult to stop and see the monument up close. Way too much traffic, impossible to stop.

It's a bit dangerous to get to the monument itself. It's in a roundabout and dodging crazy Thai traffic is iffy at the best of times. It's a monument to two Thai women that have sadly been forgotten other than this monument. WHich is why...More
