Would love to know the amount of people killed in a year from electric shocks in the country . The amount of people I know who think because they can wire a plug they can do anything electrical is shocking ! 
Anything involving water and electric in my house is wired by a uk qualified electrician , wouldn’t trust a Thai to do it .

The thousands of electrical cable criss crossing the poles in Thailand is a nightmare. They should really revamp the electrical cables to prevent future mishaps.
