Somewhere - Xi’An, China

photo of toilet from somewhere in Xi'An, China

Today, The Toilets of the World Blog brings you a toilet from Xi'An, China.

This toilet was sent in by Werner Arno van Rooyen, he took the photo during a night of "hardcore KTV'ing". A quick Google search revealed to the team that KTV'ing is pretty much the same questionable practice known to the western world as karaoke. If we are wrong, feel free to correct us.

This toilet seems pretty decent, assuming that the shining silver pole is part of the sewage removal system and doesn't serve some other questionable function. We can think of quite a few. This is one of the nicest squat toilets Werner has sent us. It's certainly much nicer than the Tibetan ones he has sent in. He mentions remembering the faint smell of fresh lemons in the air and says he was pleasantly surprised that it flushed. Sounds like a dream.

Thanks Werner,

  1. every time I see bathrooms like this, it just doesn't seem right... I appreciate it's a different culture to the western world, but toilets Are just meant to be sat down upon, not hovered over!

  2. You have a good point. I don't ever see myself reading the paper while squatting over one of these...
