Electricity and Stores
Electricity in Vietnam is 220V and 50Hz. Check your equipment before your trip to see if you need a voltage converter.
Socket shape: In Vietnam, there are three main types of sockets: flat-blade plugs, two round pins and two flat pins parallel to the ground pin. If your device’s plug is different (such as Australia, Austria, Germany, Italy, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Singapore) plugs, you will need a plug adapter. You can buy adapters from many stores in your country as well as at the airport.
Note that if you are going to the countryside there will not be much electricity. In the summer when demand outstrips supply, both cities and the countryside can experience blackouts.
