Flat or Round pin adaptor ?

I am travelling to Thailand in June, can anyone tell me what adaptor would I use in Chiang Mai. Is it the 2 prong round or flat elecrical adaptor? Is the same adaptor used in Bangkok and Phuket?

Hi buzzaround, the best is to get an adaptor. In the trade, the adapter for Thailand is C5 for Thai's plug/socket system.

If you have travelled to BKK and HKT, then in CNX it is the same.

Mai peng rai, as they say.
