Photographs of electrique plug in Myanmar

Electricity is Myanmar is supposed to be 220 - 240 V... Current situation (2018) is much better that some years ago but we still experience quite a lot of power outages, especially during dry season, and voltage is more often around 180 V that around 230v......(but we have a fair share of spikes above 250 volt....).

All hotels and many private houses have their own generators. Very usefull but when the generator starts, there is often a surge in electricity voltage.

Perfect to fry your appliance, computer, phone etc... Most private houses have "safe card" connected to every appliance to protect for electric surge, but in your hotel, it is not very common.

Our advice:

Buy an universal plug adapter which includes a power surge protection or a fuse. If you forget to buy one, you can find a plug adapter easily in local supermarket BUT you need to buy one adapter for every kind of plug you may encounter AND there is no in-built power surge protection.

Better to buy before coming.

Very interesting website where you can find any adaptor (for Myanmar trip or other trip) :
