The Best Toilet In Malaysia
Terrible toilets are a travel fact of life.
Stinky, squatty, wet and mosquito-infested. You learn to get in and get out as fast as you can. You learn to ignore the wetness slapping at your ankles or knees after a pee break, the whiff of urine on other travelers. You expand your lung capacity holding your breath in dark shit-stinky cubicles. You always have a little pack of tissues in your pocket, even if you can’t work out how to flush a tissue down a squatter.
Travel toilets can be pits of misery. When they’re not, it’s time to rejoice!
And so, fellow travellers, I give you what may be the best toilets in Malaysia, possibly the best toilets in Southeast Asia. (Outside of fancy five-star hotels of course.)
Discovered a good two and a half hour drive (a scenic drive, with photo stops) from our two star guesthouse on Langkawi. At the base of the Langkawi Cable Car that hauls you up to the top of Gunung Machinchang.
Even the squatter. (And for those of you who haven’t encountered a squat toilet before… Behold – a clean one! Cleaner than the squatter in my work toilets in Singapore.)
And the piece de resistance, the feature that makes it the best toilet in Southeast Asia – a garden! (The skylight makes it seem even more fantastic, too!) Darling Man says there was no garden feature in the men’s. Doubly good!
It was such an exciting find I had to take photos and share them before I shared the view from the top of the cable car.
Oh yes, and there was toilet paper, too. Just in case you wondered.
