Monument erected to commemorate students killed by military during riots in 1973. They were fighting for democracy and freedom for their country and deserve credit for a bravery and persistence. Worth visiting to pay respects to these brave men.

This somewhat hidden memorial is located between the Democracy Monument and Khao San Road. When you see lots (and I mean lots) of people settings lottery tickets, you're nearly there. It's a quiet place worthy of seeing if you happen to be near it.

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,
it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn
the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and
most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to
this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most
spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to
