Electrical PlugHi, which models of 220-240V plug should work for sockets/outlets in most resorts in Bhutan?
Type "G" British BS-1363 (3 rectangular/flat pins); or
Type "D" Indian BS-546 "small" (3 round pins, 5A)
Does one need a travel plug adapter if s/he has one of the above?

looking at that previous post the advice there is for India Nepal and Bhutan you need F or D
what is M is that a multi purpose
certainly most rooms have both F and D
or find one in the hallway or reception that suits
all those countries the electrics are so mindboggling you don't want to give much thought to it
certainly take an adaptor as no guarentee all hotels would have one to lend
most important thing is charge everything whenever the power is on whether it needs it not as if you wait till needs charging the power will be off!!!!!!!

7Just came back from Bhutan.
All hotels in Western Bhutan as far as Bumthang had very clever sockets you can use with almost all types of plugs (at least UK, EU, US and Indian) so no adapter was necessary. It was thanks to the shapes of the holes in the socket.
In Eastern Bhutan Indian sockets (they work with Indian and EU plugs) seemed to be most common.
