... and in Hong Kong you will use:
|Plug Type G||Plug Type D||Plug Type M|
|Outlet Type G||Outlet Type D||Outlet Type M|
Considerations for Hong Kong
It is likely you will only find plugs-type "G" in Hong Kong. Plug types "D" and "M" are considered very old and they are not common. We keep the old-plugs in our database as we don't know your exact destination. As a rule of thumb, you will probably be fine with the type "G" in hotels.
Perfect! This is very good! You will not need any sort of voltage adapter (they are always big, heavy and they can't handle too much energy. i.e. might have problems with hairdryers). You can plug your devices to the electric network grid in Hong Kong without requiring a voltage adapter.
Different plug systems
Sorry, none of the plugs used in both countries are common. You will definitelly need plug adapters, please continue reading for more information.

This adapter is extremely generic without loose terminal and finger protection, it does have earth pass-though which is a good thing; but it will not have a good grip because it support so many different plug types in only three generic slots; we don't recommend this adapter unless no better alternative can be found. i.e. a more expensive one.
