After the protesters achieved success in invading Thammasat University, they decided to hold a political rally at Sanam Luang instead because the number of protesters had increased.

Phra Athit Road under Somdet Phra Pinklao Bridge; Pan Pipop Leela Bridge intersection; Chang Rong Si Bridge; Circle in front of the Territorial Defence Command Tha Tien intersection
