Toilets are divided into men and women, as we all know. But have you ever heard of "the third bathroom"?

What's going on?


What is the third bathroom?
"The third toilet" can be simply understood as "family toilet". When family members of different genders go out together, one of them cannot take care of his own actions, and will encounter embarrassment in going to the toilet.
"The third toilet" is to solve the problem of inconvenient toilet for some special objects.

The construction of "the third toilet" will help to improve the public service facilities for tourism and embody the humanistic care of "toilet revolution".
Xue Yaping, spokesman of the National Tourism Administration, said that when a family travels to different genders, it is not convenient for you to go to the men's toilet or the women's toilet, but a third space, also called the family toilet. In addition, it can also be used by both mothers and infants like disabled people.

This year's 5A level scenic spot will be equipped with "the third toilet"

Expert: the third bathroom is the humanized care for the personalized needs of tourists
Experts said that the gradual popularity of the third bathroom reflects the personalized care of tourists in the scenic spot. Different from the "five-star public toilets" which has been hotly discussed before, "the third toilet" focuses on solving the practical problems that parents may face when they take their children out alone, or the actual needs of the elderly and disabled people who need hard care. It can also protect the privacy of some disabled people when they go to the toilet.
