Toilets

  • Taiwan is fantastic for toilets. Free and usually spotlessly clean facilities are available in parks, transport stations, shopping malls, public offices, museums, temples and rest areas.
  • While most public toilets are the squat style, there are usually at least one or two stalls with Western-style sit-down toilets. They often also have toilet paper.
  • Restaurants and cafes usually have their own bathroom facilities, and Western-style toilets are standard in apartments and hotels.
  • It is handy to remember the characters for men (男; nán) and women (女; ).
  • Many places ask you not to flush toilet paper but to put it in the wastebasket beside the toilet.
