I like to work in bed and carry a 50' ethernet cable in case I'm upgraded to a suite.........but yes, having a cable on hand is worth it as some places try to charge for using them or simply don't have one. This is for traveling in general and not really specific to China.
Yes will definitely need an adapter. I carry an adapter/transformer I got at the mail-order house Brookstone years ago. Nine out of ten times I don't really need the transformer part as the power supply for these computers etc are rated, but I step it down to 110 anyway and let it do the work instead saving some heat on the powercord. Just don't pack the charger for an expensive electric toothbrush, they burn out really easy even with the transformer, not sure what's up with that, but it cost me a bundle! The adapters I like the best are the ones that are self contained without a lot of loose parts, and some very good ones can sometimes even be bought on the airplane via duty free shopping. On mine, the three prong flat ones actually swivel so it can be used on either the straight or angled plugs....if that makes any sense.....Cheers

You just need one of these cheap adaptors:
Just use the picture for reference so you know basically what you need.
Radio Shack should carry these things for example if you want to buy in a store, and they can make sure you get the right thing.
