Using public bathrooms in China can be an experience. I do try to avoid it at all costs because you never know what you are going to get (squat toilets) or the condition of the place. Usually there is no toilet paper, BYOTP is the name of the game and although there will be sinks and even hoses to wash your feet there will be no soap. While in Beijing, I decided to use a public bathroom and I will say something that is very rare when it comes to public restrooms in China, I am so glad I did! Look at this gem of an experience, there were 6-7 stalls reserved as an express lane for urinating only (practical). When you go inside the express door, no squat toilets but a long along metal trough on the floor, at a slight angle, and you squatted over and contributed to a communal river of pee! My tip for anyone who faces a similar situation go to the first door as you enter because you are where the river starts.
