Toilets

  • Coin-operated self-cleaning toilets (often marked 'WC') are found on the streets of larger cities.
  • Cafes and restaurants' facilities are reserved for paying customers. You may be able to ask permission; otherwise consider buying a coffee.
  • Large department stores (which may require coins) and libraries can be good bets, as can large hotels with facilities in the lobby.
  • Take advantage of restrooms at museums and attractions, which are generally well maintained.
  • Petrol station restrooms and basic roadside toilet blocks are usually available on major routes but cleanliness can vary greatly.
