International Phone Calls
International calls can be made with your mobile phone. First dial 001, 006, 008, or 009 then enter the country code + area code + number. Dialing 001 is the most expensive; the other are usually cheaper. However, the cost depends on where you are calling to.
The cheapest way to make an international call is to buy a “CAT Phone Net”, “CAT Thai Card”, or “Thookdee Card” at any convenience stores or bookstores. Instructions are usually found on the card.
Electrical System in Thailand
The electricity in Thailand operates at 220 V, 50 Hz. Some appliances, such as Notebook adaptors, Cellular phone chargers, electric shavers, digital camera chargers will likely support universal voltage (any system from 100 V to 250 V). However, please verify the voltage requirements of your appliances before plugging them into a socket. Most parallel (rectangular or round) connectors will fit. Otherwise, an adaptor is needed.
