Power Sockets


I'm trying to find out what kind of power sockets most of the hotels in Vietnam are called. We are travelling from Australia and just wondering if I will need to take a converter.

Round pins -220v is the dominant type. A few places also still have the flat pins.

Whilst the voltage is the same, you will need an adaptor ---these are readily bought at Myer, good travelgoods stores, " Richard " Smith ( his shortened christian name is a profanity and I will be thown off Forum)---as Bonk said in previous post they are generally 2 point and round----but, can be 2 point and flat--or buy a multiple international adaptor that fits most of the world---cost of former are about $12 AUD, the multi about $30AUD.

If you are staying on the normal route , the round should suffice----I once stayed in the wilds somewhere in a minus 5* hotel that had "Four" different style of outlets in one room!

Good hotels will help out and provide in some cases.

Hope some help
