Electricity in Thailand

Electricity in Thailand is 220 volts, alternating at 50 cycles per second. If you travel to Thailand with a device that does not accept 220 volts at 50 hertz, you will need a voltage converter.

The photo at the bottom shows the wall receptacle design usually found in Thailand. They accommodate both flat prongs (like in the U.S. and Japan) and round prongs (like much of Europe and Asia). Actually, most receptacles in Thailand are two prong, missing the third grounding/earthing prong at the bottom. However, the newest office and condominium dwellings usually offer the third prong due to increased awareness of the importance of grounding for both safety and equipment damage reasons.
