electrical outlets in Indonesia
Can anyone tell me what style the electrical outlets in Indonesia are, both on Bali and Java? I want to bring the appropriate plug adapter to charge my computer and camera. I have many adapters and don't want to bring them all, just the one I need for that country.

It's been a year now, but I am fairly certain that we were able to get by in Java and Bali with s European adapter. Some places had US plugs, but that was only for higher-end locations. But I'm about 90% certain that the hotels we stayed at all had plugs that worked with our European (two prong) adapters.

According to the web site there are some 3 pin British style plugs also. Has anyone seen any of those?

The most common outlets are the two prong round, types C&F. Type G is less common but does occur, mostly for Asian made appliances.

If the adapters I bring won't work, would it be easy to buy one in a local store? I am staying in Amed, Ubud, and Sanur while on Bali. How likely is it a small local hotel would have them available to borrow and use? Is not having the right plug adapter a common problem amongst visitors?

Your resort should have adapters. If not, they're sold all over.
