In China, most public toilets are squatting ones which can be found in commercial areas and are usually well-marked. If you need to answer the nature's call, look for a "WC" sign. A useful word to know is Ce Suo/Weishengjian ( washroom ), which is Chinese for toilet.If you are man, keep the character"男(nán)" in your mind; or if you are woman, try to remember "女(nǚ)" in your heart.

Most public toilets are free but without toilet paper, so it is advisable to always carry some tissue paper with you at all times. If you can't seem to find a washroom, try to find a McDonalds or KFC or decent hotels, where there is a clean washroom available.
