Having recently been to Burma (Myanmar) I was surprised by the plug sockets there which occasionally dished out electricity in between power cuts.
There is no standard and you will usually find a mix of sockets even within a single room to cope with whatever plug you have. 

Better still they have sockets like this (I just had to buy one which cost me 70p) and it will accept just about any plug at all although I’m not sure it would cope well with a US appliance rated for only 110v.
But I guess if it fries your hair dryer then that’s your problem.
