Victory Monument

The heart of bangkok. This view is easily seen when on the Sky Train on the way to "ChatuChak". A beautiful place to be notwithstanding the jam and the dust. On the Skytrain ~ you'll get a view of the city and if you stay around the vicinity of the skytrain, the skytrain will be your mode of transport for the duration of your time in BKK.


Its a really packed city but a great place to be. This is the view of the city which is a nice place to be ~ shopping, suntan, etc


A map is really important to get. You get get it when you land at BKK. As you get your bags from the conveyor belt, there will be signs indicating the bangkok map available for free. get it. This map is a saviour.
