Public toilets are rare, so take advantage of facilities in places such as hotels, restaurants, bus terminals and museums; a fee of about M$5 may be charged. It’s fairly common for toilets in budget hotels and restaurants to lack seats.

When out and about, carry some toilet paper with you because it often won’t be provided. If there’s a bin beside the toilet (nearly always, except in ritzy hotels), put soiled paper in it because the drains can’t cope otherwise.
