The Canadian government says the explosions have been reported at the following three locations in Bangkok: near the Government Complex off of Chaeng Wattana Road, near the Chong Nonsi BTS station, and on Rama IX Road Subsoi 57/1.

Besides Bangkok, the Canadian government is also warning to avoid all travel to and through the far southern provinces, due to criminally and politically motivated violent incidents: Narathiwat, Pattani, Songkhla (including the city of Hat Yai), and Yala.
