The monument whose sharp pointed peak pierces the skyline of Bangkok is located in a traffic circle, where several roads intersect at the Ratchathewi district in Bangkok and is also the focal point for several modes of public transport. However the monument which was constructed in 1941 continues to receive attention from even foreign delegates in the form of flowers and bouquets. This monument in Bangkok is unique in the sense that it is developed in a western design moving away from the traditional Thai construction that is obvious in the Democracy Monument also in Thailand. The five statues that represent, army, navy, air force, police and the civilian force also display western origin and are the work of an Italian sculptor.
For the foreign traveller looking to have a good time, the neighbourhood of the monument provides ample area for amusement and relaxing. Street side vendors, small eateries and budget restaurants dominate the dining scene. It is the same for shopping as well, as it is more about affordability than durability especially when it comes to trinkets and jewels that one finds here. The area has its own vibrant nightlife which has a range of entertainment options from road side drink stalls to cosy pubs and classy hangouts with jazzy music.
