Travel Adaptor for Hong Kong

You are in luck! Hong Kong uses the same type G socket as found in the UK so you shouldnt need any adaptors as long as your appliances have standard UK 3 pin plugs.

Please be aware that whilst a travel adaptor will allow you to physically plug a UK 3 pin plug into a different socket it will not change the voltage or frequency of the supply.

Voltage - The mains voltage in Hong Kong is 220 V which is compatible with all UK appliances (UK voltage is currently specified as 230 V +10% / - 6%).

Frequency - The frequency in Hong Kong is 50 Hz which is the same as the UK.

Special considerations - Largely based on UK system. Occasionally, a "shaver" socket (similar to Type C) is found in some bathrooms that provides low current to some other plug types. These almost always have a 110 V socket and a 220 V socket in the same unit, or a switch to select voltage, which are sometimes labeled as 110 V and 220 V. This duo installation is not as common in HK as in the UK. There was a smaller 2A version of type D, now obsolete.
