Most shops in Thailand take only Thai baht. Currency exchange service can be done at Chiang Mai International airport.

Beside cash, many big stores accept Debit/Credit Cards (VISA or MasterCard) for payment. However, in traditional market or smaller stores, you must pay with cash. There are a number of money changers that you can find at some shopping areas or banks. If you need to draw cash, there are several ATMs that receive international Debit/Credit Cards such as VISA, MasterCard, Maestro, Cirrus and Alto.

Electricity

Electricity in Thailand is 220 Volts. If you travel to Thailand with device that does not accept 220 Volts at 50 Hertz, you will need a voltage converter. Outlets in Thailand generally accept two types of power socket plugs: type A/B/C/F. Ref: http://www.iec.ch/worldplugs/
