Democracy Monument, Phra Nakhon, Bangkok

Bangkok Districts; Phra Nakhon

Phra Nakhon was also the name of Bangkok Province, until it was merged in 1972 with Thonburi to form the present day Bangkok metropolis.

I have written about and taken photographs of this area so many times. I can’t say enough what a fantastic place it really is to explore.

Starting in the south of the district is Memorial Bridge:
