Scheduled black outs not happen.
If fixing/improving high voltage cables have to be done than there is a back up/deviation power supply. A smart city supply.  :-)

"do understand that many tourists never in their life..."Why?Are power black outs not occurring outside Thailand? Please give us a break!

As always, we love to do this during tourist high season!
But, do understand that many tourists never in their life experienced a power black out before.
