Best Toilet City

Did you know that Dongguan ranks No.1 on the “City Open Toilet Coverage List” of the “Toilet Navigation System Big Data Analysis Report?” This means that Dongguan landed 1st place for its effective layout and location of plentiful placed bathrooms for public use. It is something to be proud of we guess… or is it?

“Open toilets” include individual public toilets and those in the buildings that remain open to the public such as in libraries and cafes, etc. The report was released on February 26, to show how well the “Toilet Navigation System” runs—launched by The Ministry of Culture and Tourism of the People’s Republic of China and Gaode Map.

100 main cities in China were selected for the report, covering all provincial cities, transportation hub cities and cities with high user activity in the global tourist toilet navigation system. All data in the report was based on POI (Point of Interest) data from Gaode Map, user’s searching data and big data from the system. Following Dongguan’s 1st place was Foshan, Shenzhen, Shanghai, Xiamen, Suzhou, Ningbo, Beijing, Wuxi and Nanjing. For first-time and unsuccessful squatters this one’s for you: we hope to see Dongguan ranking No.1 on the “western toilet coverage list” next time.
