Travel Adventures: Bathrooms in China

by Randy Y

I decided to put a blanket on a squat toilet and give
it a shot.

"In China, they usually don't have western-style toilets.  So, sleeping on the toilet can be a real problem.  I was in Xi'an in western China when I ran out of money.  I decided to put a blanket on a squat toilet and give it a shot.  I locked the door to the stall in the train station and didn't have any problems from the police.  The toilet wasn't exactly flush with the floor, so my back did hurt in the morning.  Also, be careful you don't drop change or your wallet into the toilet.

The smell really doesn't bother me.  I saved 4 CAD by sleeping there, so I guess it was a good idea.  By the way, there were several mice there."
