Security is being provided at 12 key New Year countdown events, including Central World, Asiatique, and the CDC complex - sites for celebrations from the evening of December 31 to January 1.

Traffic police and other public safety services will be in place to direct outbound traffic from Bangkok on December 27-28, and on January 1-2 for inbound traffic. Extra police personnel will also man train or bus commuter terminals.
