The gateway for most travelers disembarking in Bangkok, Victory Monument is more than a bustling transit neighborhood. It's also a commemorative obelisk and the country's kilometer zero—distances to other Thai destinations are measured from this locomotion location. Victory Monument's inhabitants rush like the sound made by the neighborhood's scooters and skytrains. The ground beneath their tracks offers plenty of space for the public to peruse street vendors' stalls while slurping on the neighborhood favorite, Boat Noodle Soup.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
