Security in Bangkok has been temporarily stepped up following Sunday’s twin explosions of time bombs, particularly around Siam station and its walkway leading to Siam Paragon.

Also at the BTS Siam station security officers runs a hand-held metal detector over the passengers’ bags.

The malls are CentralWorld, CentralPlaza and Central Festival in the city, but other major malls in prime shopping areas increased security checks as well.
