• What is the electrical currency/outlet in Thailand?
Thailand utilizes the standard American plug. But the voltage is 220V instead of 110V like it is in the United States. Adapters are not necessary for most battery powered items. Refer to http://www.thailandguru.com
• Is there internet access on property?
While we hope you’ll try to unplug, yes, there is wi-fi on property and it is free for all guests.
• What will the weather be like?
Because of it’s equatorial location, Thailand tends to have fairly stable weather with the ‘wet’ season occurring between mid October and April and the ‘dry’ season between May and September. It is generally always hot with temperatures hovering in the mid to high 80s. September is a great time to visit – averages 75-90–a little cooler and a bit less humid but still tropically gorgeous.
