    You seem to be able to plug in American-style two-pin plugs (but it's something like 220 volt, 50Hz, i.e. similar to NZ voltage). Round-pin European-style plugs also tend to work.

    Or you could try here -gives electrical plugs worldwide as well as those needed for phones, together with TV standards and dialing codes

    We recently bought an adaptor set (I'm in Aus) to take with us for our trip around Thailand. Going by the information on the packet you would use either the Europe or Great Britain plugs depending on which part of Thailand you are in.

    Great Britain voltage,(220v-240v) perhaps, but I have never seen British 3 prong plugs in North, East, or Central Thailand-just the Continental 2 pin type.

    Hmmmm, that's interesting. Am glad we got the triple adaptor pack, I'm sure at least one of them will work for us.

    Fortunately we will be going to Singapore too so at least we'll get some use out of the Great Britain one...lol

    I agree and can add South Thailand to the list, only ever 2 pin

    You trust your packet more than your internet friends?

    I was not sure about South Thailand, never having visited it - also it seems they use a British type plug in nearby Malaysia (and Singapore)

    Did I say that Mikenz66?

    Am just glad I'll be able to get use out of all the plugs, looks like the European one will get most of the workout tho
