    Travel to China

    I will be going to Beijing and Shanghai in 3 weeks from Canada.
    I purchased the adapter kit from the Apple store, but looking at the graphic on the package, it looks like the same plug as North America....
    Anybody have any experience with this ? Will my Canada charger work in China ?

    How difficult will it be to find Free Wi-Fi in these cities ?

    Thanks for your help

    During my last visit to Beijing and Shanghai I found that all the major hotels had US-style plugs, so there should be no problem. In Hong Kong, although it's now Chinese, its UK 'heritage' means that it has many UK-style plugs.

    No problems with WiFi - both in hotels, coffee shops, franchises (MacDonalds - yes, you can't get away from them) and many public spaces. Some of them are 'filtered' by the great 'Firewall of China' so there may be some sites that you can't access. If you're planning to retrieve your mail while you're there, you might want to check to see if your service provider's email server or webmail is on the 'banned' list.
