Squatting toilets are traditional Chinese toilets in most places or in the normal living quarters of the local people. Western style sitting toilet can only be found in hotels and some restaurants. There are seldom a toilet paper roll in the stalls or a soap, and floors may be very messy sometimes. I had known before leaving and expect even the worst. My advise is to bring your own tissue and antisepsis handwash that doesn't require water flushing. Don't try ones in areas where local people live, both of your eyes and nose are suffering.........

I am not used to using squat toilets. And the pollution is quite prevalent. That is a shame, because Jiangsu is a very beautiful and wealthy part of China and the world.

when you know the fact that about 60-70 chinese men are smokers, you'd not be surprised why so many people spit there. :( in 2005, cigarette sales generated $32.5 billion in taxes revenue in the country, approximately 7.6% of the country's total revenue. so why domestic or foreign tobacco companies are all smile with their flourishing sales there. bad thing is that smokers are everywhere and they spit even on rugs or carpets.

It would have to be spitting. Even in an up market Restaurant while enjoying my dinner, an individual made a revolting noise brought up phlem from his throat, and then unashamedly spat it on the polished timber floor narrowly missing the waiters shoe. 'Expectorate?' Revolting. The tiolets? Well, so what.

Bad toilets? why is the smell so ignored by municiple government? So many Chinese are proud of their "new" China, but the smell lingers brilliantly....germs are airborne....so are opinions.....China is China, no matter what the opinion, and will always be this way, the "people" have no motivation to change, nothing new about that...even charging 2 cents to use public toilets, but, it would seem that smell permeates only the foreign senses; as for China, the people will continue to water their tea plants with their toilet water....so foreigners should drink the tea cautiously, delicious, yes? :arrow: :geek:

Well, although there is truth in your statement, the country is getting much better in terms of cleanliness and polution. I have worked in China for almost ten years and one thing that I notice is that Chinese like to follow what other more developed countries do. Many are now using westernized toilets; people love to eat fast foods (junk foods) such as mcdonalds "imported" from the U.S; the road signs are labeled almost the same way with the same style of paint/etc as those in north america. There are plenty of examples. And based on these trends, people clearly have motivation to change at least in the general sense.
