"Wichai Prasit Fort" Forts Tip by Willettsworld

Forts, Bangkok: 2 reviews and 4 photos


The Bangkok forts were constructed after King Rama I established Bangkok as the new capital in 1782. With the destruction of Ayutthaya by the Burmese in 1767 still fresh on his mind, security was a critical condition. This particular one is located on the west bank of the river in the Bangkok Yai district.
