After checking in my hotel, I wandered around Khao San Road and I chanced upon this memorial after turning right at the end of Khao San.
From the road, one can read the words “14 OCTOBER 73 MEMORIAL” at the left side of the entrance...More
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 is a small memorial commemorating the uprising in 1973, led by Thammasat University students, that eventually brought down the dictatorship of the time. The memorial is simple, surrounded by lots of photos and newspaper coverage from the time. The bravery of the students in...More

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 walking from Wat Bowornwet to Wat Mahan Napraham, I passed by this memorial. Located next to it is the Lottery Office where there are many vendors outside this office selling tickets.
I briefly stopped by, looked around and took pictures. It reminded me of...More

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 Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around
Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
