Tim’s Travel Tips for China: Bathroom Adventures

Mary Ann and I were lucky that we ate right and took care of our major bathroom needs at the hotel before we left for the day.  Generally, the major hotels and “Western” retail stores had proper and sometimes decadent bathrooms and toilets.  One hotel had the famous Toto Washlet!

Once we got into factories and normal buildings it wasn’t unusual to find a “Squatty Potty”.  Sometimes they weren’t too private.  Luckily, Mary Ann and I didn’t have to do major business in the Squatty Potty.  However, females still have to think a little bit more with the basics.  Mary Ann looked up online the best way to use it.  We talked about it with our Chinese staff, JoJo and Una, and we had a laugh as they disagreed with how to use it properly.  Turn towards or away…it is up to you females.
