Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha expressed his outrage at those responsible.

“I would like to condemn those causing the situation which destroys peace and damages the country’s image,” Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha said.

“I have instructed officials to take care of public safety and those affected promptly.”

Local media report two suspects have since been arrested.

The Australian Government is urging tourists to avoid the affected areas.

“We are aware of reports of several small explosions in Bangkok, including near the Mahanakorn Building at the Chong Nonsi train station,” the Smartraveller website reads.

“Avoid the affected areas. Follow advice of local authorities.”
