1) In China, toilet paper must be provided by yourself|
From the moment you leave the plane, you will be dazzled by the newly constructed, spacious Chinese airport. A blink of the eye will have you believing you are still in San Francisco or Denver; however, please take five minutes of your time to visit the washroom and you will return back to reality.
Reality in China means a bathroom with no toilet paper. Even though there is a receptacle that resembles a toilet paper dispenser, it is always empty. This is because the moment that free toilet paper is provided to the public, it will be completely pilfered by the same people who use the washroom.
As the survival handbook states, the fact remains that washrooms do in fact have toilet paper, but it is often located at the entrance to the washroom. That’s why you must remember to take a piece of toilet paper before entering the washroom.
What do you do if you forget? Here’s an example of someone who encountered this problem before: a foreign woman in a washroom cried out pitifully, “There doesn’t seem to be any toilet paper in here; can someone go get me some?” Outside the stall stood at least 15 women waiting in line to use the toilet, but no one paid any attention to her.
The washroom at the airport is considered to be high end. Aside from this situation at the airport, you will encounter an endless slew of difficulties regarding washrooms. The vast majority of washrooms do not provide any toilet paper, hand dryers or soap; some provide hand dryers, but on the other hand do not have any toilet paper nor soap. Additionally, squat toilets are very common in China whereas Americans are more accustomed to “sitting-style” toilets.
