A recent House of Cards episode has made me paranoid about train platforms with no protective barriers. At Siam station I make sure I have my back against a pillar so no one can push me onto the tracks, and eye everyone with suspicion as we wait for the BTS train to arrive.
Thanks to my vigilance, my overactive imagination and I make it to Chit Lom station unscathed. This is the station closest to Platinum mall, but it's still a partially unsheltered 15 minute walk away. I wonder if there's a better way to get there.
