Restroom, washroom, water closet or lavatory. What you call this room will depend on where you come from, but in most parts of the world you will be able to navigate to this room by looking for a sign that simply says ‘Toilets’. Sometimes this can be quite funny or informative in itself. Instead of describing this to you, I decided to share some pictures I’ve taken of these.
This particularly amusing sign for a men’s toilet was found in the southern African country, eSwatini (Formally Swaziland).
This one isn’t funny or informative, but I took this picture in Japan & the Japanese are known to have complex, futuristic toilets which leads to downright hysterical situations for foreigners.
I took this picture in a restroom in Indonesia; I found it interesting & slightly amusing that the establishment felt the need to place this on the mirror.
I saw this sign in China. You’ll notice the words are written in Mandarin, English & braille. You’ll also notice that the braille is different for the two languages & this is something that many people don’t know – braille is not universal.
Not a toilet sign, but definitely an association I would never have imagined existed. I saw this in Cambodia.
Tongue in cheek toilet sign I saw in Qatar.
I saw this in Malaysia & it made me giggle because it implies that tourists require special toilets or if you aren’t a tourist, sucks to be you.
Keep traveling, keep safe.
