Travel Adaptor for Vietnam

There are multiple socket types used in Vietnam (A / C / G). There is no one type that is more common than any other so you may be faced with any one of the sockets pictured to the right. Under these circumstances the best recommendation that we can make is that you invest in a worldwide adaptor that is a single unit capable of connecting to multiple socket types.

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 Vietnam is 220 V which is compatible with all UK appliances (UK voltage is currently specified as 230 V +10% / - 6%).

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

Special considerations - Type A is the norm in Southern Vietnam and Type C is the norm in Northern Vietnam (according to the pre-unification border at 17 degrees North). Type G is found only in some new luxury hotels, primarily those built by Singaporean and Hong Kong developers. But Type G is never found in homes, shops, or offices.
