“Toilet Revolution” Already Showing Improvements Across China

China is well known for its incredible natural surroundings and man-made innovations, both historic and modern, but travelers are sometimes wary of the restroom options at various spots throughout the country. The destination is working to remedy this concern with a three-year campaign that the China National Tourism Administration (CNTA) is calling “The Toilet Revolution.” As part of the campaign, CNTA and local governments will build a total of 33,000 new restrooms and renovate 24,000 more by 2017. Improvements are already being seen in places like the Shapotou Desert scenic zone in northwest China’s Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region along the Silk Road route, where specially provided facilities have been provided for Muslim visitors. The needs of the elderly, disabled, children and others are also being considered in the construction and renovation of bathroom facilities. Recent inspections by CNTA show that the majority of toilets of scenic spots throughout China meet the national standard, and strides are being made to maintain and improve upon these benchmarks. China is also using eco-friendly materials in the bathrooms’ construction and other advanced technologies to keep them clean, tidy, dry and odorless. Here is a listing of the destinations where restrooms will be built or renovated:
