The Victory Monument Minivan Terminal is the central hub for Bangkok’s quick and convenient minivan travel. Minivans leave the area regularly at irregular intervals. When the van is full it leaves. Buses have around 15-20 seats and unlike the larger buses drivers can nip through traffic and shorten journey times.
The Victory Monument Minivan Terminal is favoured by locals for travelling short journeys between destinations surrounding Bangkok (e.g. Central Thailand). They rarely travel to locations beyond 5 hours from Bangkok. Slightly squashed at times. Be sure to check your seat belt before leaving the terminal.
The victory monument area is lined with white vans and van terminals starting at the Century Plaza and Victory Monument Skytrain Station.
