*Explosion in Central Bangkok 17/08/15 – Update 1700hrs.*

On Monday the 17th August at approximately 7pm, a device exploded in the area of the Erawan shrine and Central World Shopping Centre at the Rajaprasong Intersection in Bangkok. So far there have been 16 fatalities confirmed and around 80 injuries reported. It is not clear at the time of writing who was responsible for the explosion. We are advising clients in Bangkok to avoid the Rajaprasong junction, and to be extra vigilant when travelling in central city areas. All SpiceRoads tours are operating today, and transport services in Bangkok are continuing as normal. We will continue to monitor the situation carefully, and will send updates of any changes. If riders have concerns or questions, please contact your Adventure Tour Consultant who will be able to advise you.
