Dear all, I am off to Thailand next week and have a question about electricty there, namely 'plug sockets'.
I will be taking my phone and camera which I bought in China and they both use the 'two prong' plug.
I can't remember what the sockets were like in Thailand? I think maybe they were 'two prong' but the round type not the 'flat type' like they have in China???

Can anyone advise? I don't want to get there and find that I can't charge my camera (phone is not really a problem).
Thanks all stay safe x

According to this site, they have both the two flat prong plugs (same as in the USA; though the voltage is 220V), and the two round prong plugs (same as in most of Europe (excluding the UK)) - and sometimes sockets can take either kind.

I have found in China that most hotel rooms will have sockets for most kinds of plugs (American flat and European round is common, less often Ausie and New Zealand angled plugs). If you need a physical adaptor, they are easy to buy at any Chinese convince store store. At most Chinese convince stores they also sell small power strips that will take most kinds of plugs and are usually about 20 rmb or cheaper.
