What travel adaptor do I need for thailand?

I am taking my iphone with me and charger for it so was wondering what plugs they use over there? If anyone has any suggestions to where to buy one from would be most helpful? from the UK

Hi,

Also note that most hotels will happily provide an adapter for you to use.

Also bring a power board so that you have multiple power plugs for phones laptops hair straightener etc.

If you not stay in guest house you can ask from your front desk.

Thailand uses a very clever hybrid electrical socket which takes both round-pin European-style plugs and flat-pin North American-style plugs. thailandguru.com/electricity-220volts-thaila…

You don't need any adaptor. See above.

Can someone tell me the best option for travelling from Bangkok International airport to Pranburi? I believe there is a first class bus to Hua Hin but do we need to change there?
