Squat Toilet Signs

I have found different symbols for squat toilets. Here are a few of the ones I have encountered along with a photo of what a squat toilet looks like.  They all seem to come with the fancy steps up to the platform. Shanghai doesn’t have too many of this style toilets (thank goodness!), most places have “Western toilets” but you can run into a few. I found more in Beijing than Shanghai and of course the further from large cities they will be available.

    Wow – kinda like my travels through Switzerland years ago, which in my mind I subtitled “Adventures in Plumbing!” Thank goodness for “Western toilets”!

    All that engineering into the steps, door and signage and no one thought of getting it up off the floor. Kind of like……..who needs a knife & fork? we have these chopsticks. Simplicity at its finest!
