voltage convertes in asia -- help!

I will be in Hong Kong, Bangkok and Bhutan. I have been told that in Bhutan you need an Indian style voltage converter. What do I need in Hong Kong and Bangkok. Any suggestions for where to purchase these?

You can purchase a "pack" e.g.one brand is American Tourister from Walmart that has all the adaptors for pretty much any place in the world.

Are you asking about a voltage converter, like 220 V converted into 110 V or are you asking about the shape of the plug - plug adapter?

If you are asking about voltage then Hong Kong and Thailand is the same - 220 V @ 50 cycles. If you are asking about plug shape then it's totally different with Hong Kong using the UK style plug whereas in Thailand it's a mixture of US and Continental European style.
