The toilet is always an important and necessary area everywhere, from home, apartment to office, company, hall, etc. You’ve been through countries in Asia and were surprised when you discovered it. How can the uniqueness of each toilet be so interesting? Let’s explore the “strange” culture with Uuviet from countries that “relieve sadness”!
KOREA – SOAP PLUG
You can find this special soap in public toilets in Korea. We are used to soap dispensers in washrooms, but visitors to Korea may be surprised to see this device in some traditional toilets. Soap is attached to an iron bar. Users will rub their hands on this soap and then rinse with water.
INDONESIA – HAND HYGIENE REGULATIONS
In Indonesia, people often distinguish two hands, one hand for cleaning and the other for eating. In this country, according to traditional rules, people use the left hand to go to the toilet and the right hand to get food. They may find it rude to give them things with your left hand as it is considered “hand hygiene”. The right hand is used for more “noble” tasks such as making offerings and holding food.
THAILAND – TOILET FOR “ALL GENDER”
When visiting Thailand, visitors can find toilets for all genders. This form is suitable for people with special needs such as the elderly, disabled, transgender, or helpful for parents to help their children in the toilet.
CHINA – URGENT SATISFACTORY
Although this country is grown in infrastructure, many places still use traditional squat toilets. However, some bathrooms are still equipped with underfloor toilets for those in need or foreign tourists. The disadvantage of squatting in toilets is that it is hard to balance, especially on vehicles such as trains. In return, the squatting toilet posture is better for health, while avoiding contact with surfaces, safer during the epidemic.
JAPAN – EMERGENCY BUTTON
Toilets in Japan have emergency buttons. That is thought to accommodate a rapidly aging population. The switch will help the authorities act in time if the elderly citizens need urgent help when using the toilet. However, this is also sometimes annoying for foreign visitors to Japan; Because they cannot read Japanese, they accidentally press the wrong button to call for emergency assistance and may have an unexpected meeting with the authorities outside the toilet.
