Singaporean Toilets

This is a blog post about toilets. I will be writing about them after each country. Be prepared to be riveted beyond belief.

Singapore
Was pleasantly surprised. As a kid who suffered from food poisoning every time she even looked at food in Singapore (we went every two years or so as my dad is from Singapore) I feared bathrooms in the country as my memories were mostly of squat toilets, wet floors,and automatic flushes – mostly when I was halfway through my business. But, this time around, as an adult who can hover over the toilet seat more elegantly, I was surprised by how clean most bathrooms were, even in hawker centres; where every thing usually has a layer of oil hanging over it! Squat toilets were found in some areas; older restaurants, buildings, train stations, but all had a ‘normal’ Western toilet too that I usually used. There was also toilet paper supplied, sometimes in a big roll near the sinks which you had to grab before you went into the cubicle.

Generally, no charge to use the bathroom in public areas.

Places like The Marina Bay Sands, and other fancy places will have Western toilets. Some older places, non-tourist buildings, or even the train stations will also have the option of a squat toilet.
