We leave 4/13 for the "Cultural Centers of China" outing and the power issue has me confused.  I have a international power adapter I've used before, but can't figure out which adapter plug will work in Shanghai, XIan and Beijing.  Any one been there before??  Is it the Australia/Hong Kong plug?  Any help appreciated!!

I hope someone who has gone on the same tour and stayed at the same hotel can post a response to your question. But before that happens, here is what my husband offers because he used to travel to China on company business.

See the plug pictures in from Travel Oasis? my husband said that the first three (WA-7, WA-16, and #2) are commonly seen in hotels in China, with the #2 as the most popular. Some hotels may accomodate additional adapter types because they want to accomodate travelers from Hong Kong.

As my husband and I recall, each of the hotels had a standard US (110v, 60 Hz) socket for low amp devices such as an electric razor or camera battery chager.
