Toilet post#27

So where do you think this is ..
C H I N A without a doubt. =D
Pictures are from
Ocean Park.
Hong Kong is part of China, no?

Alright. It's kind of a cheat post (being short & not really interesting) but since I took the pictures, they have to go somewhere. =D

Butt (mispell? where?) look at the crowd and yet, no long queue due to the many cubicles.With paper, paper everywhere ie in cubicles and near wash basins. It's summer so these facilities are fully air-conditioned. Yes. Public toilets. Free public toilets. Think they put in heaters during winters?

Do note the water tap. All over China, most if not all public toilets are with built-in sensors tap to minimise common touch. Same goes for the flush systems. Now if only the door knobs too...

Coming soon, 'si-sou-chien' posts from mainland China:-

Xian, home of the Terracotta Warriors.
Beijing, a city ..
  • blessed with heaving tourist money churners like the consistently refurbished Forbidden City and the crumbling Great Wall,
  • porkmarked from the controversial Tiannamen Square crackdown a decade ago,
  • awarded host of the 29th Olympic Games a year ago, and last but never least,
  • home to some best spitters in the world - height, velocity, volume, distance, decibel. Can't help but to rub in some ewws factor. Hehe. Consider yourselves lucky the speed of their manuevers is faster than my camera shutters .. else sure got pictures!
Please be warned (yet again) that my experience with the 'si-sou-chien' (washroom aka loos aka little boys/girls room aka powder room aka toilet) has been all reasonably good. Remember my earlier China post?

So again I stress, dear masochists, be geared for major disappointment. =P

Tummythoz said...

*Shaking head at Selba*, you'll be disappointed. Mainland was just as clean.

Nic(KHKL), YES DRY!! Clean sandals in and out AND save time in the pants folding up exercise.

CUMI & CIKI said...

not bad wat.. the toilet looks modern:P (Should i start breathing now.. ?!)

Tummythoz said...

Cumi& ciki, errr in HK can breathe but in d mainland ..err.. need to hold a bit. Dry & clean but since used papers are rather thrown into rubbish bins instead of toilet bowls .. ((-_-))"

PureGlutton said...

I really like your insights on toilets, lol! Good that they provide paper generously!

daphne said...

WAH.. i didnt realise china's loos hv become so "posh"- haha.. the china i remembered were toilets without doors....

Tummythoz said...

PureGlutton, best when there's plenty of free tissue in restaurants.

daphne, heard those r still common in d outskirts .. but-hor in d big cities, quite often than not one will meet locals who r not really bothered with the door/lock. =P

backStreetGluttons said...

Phew , what a fabulous view.
I mean ( err we mean ) the wall.

Got no more those squatting thing already ah ?

Life for Beginners said...

Ah... Ocean Park. Was supposed to go there but headed to Stanlye Beach instead. Didn't check out the toilets there though. :P

Tummythoz said...

backStreetGluttons, those pictures r squatting in line..

Life for Beginners, bet it was burning hot too. Ocean Park DO NOT have enough shades! Fav spot for us was the Panda Bear Enclosure .. very well air-conditioned!
