Will be travelling through Cambodia and Laos in the next couple of months. Can someone advise as to the type of adaptor I need to get for power sockets.

Depends on where you come from. Everywhere I went in Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam had the same 2 prong outlets we use here in Canada/USA. The electricity itself is different(higher voltage and lower frequency) but most adapters are built for this now(just make sure the adapter is good for higher voltages, should say right on it 110-240 or something like that).
If from Europe, Australia etc just know you need an adapter to go to a 2 prong outlet.
It was actually funny seeing how many people didn't realize this and were trying to use big bulky converter plugs to change the voltage down to 110.

Am from Australia. Travelled Vietnam last year but wasn't sure if the sockets were the same.. Thank you for your advice

Yep. Vietnam, Thailand, Laos and Cambodia all use same sockets. Some have slightly different electricity I believe but overall I never needed to use a converter as my adapter covered all the ranges.
