Beijing is hoping that its millions of visitors, including an estimated half a million foreigners will have a wonderful experience using the over 5,300 public toilets in the city and Olympic venues.
All the public facilities will have free toilet paper and liquid soap -- a new development that will be available during the Olympics and Paralymics.
There's even 8,000 workers trained to keep the toilets clean.
"Public toilets reflect the living and hygiene standards of a society", said Guo Weidong, a Beijing municipal administration commission spokesman.
And for those not able or willing to squat over a hole, there are some Western-style toilets too.
"Beijing is working hard to make every public toilet a pleasant experience for the millions who visit the city for the Games," said Yu Debin, deputy director of the Beijing tourism bureau.
The toilet drive began in 2005 after a 1994 survey showed 60 percent of foreigners were afraid to enter public toilets in the city.
My policy is to use hotel restrooms. But of course I'll go to the nearest loo if I'm really desperate. And I've had to use some really nasty ones, like the one in a truck stop when I went to Hebei Province for a weekend in the grasslands.
Basically they were open stalls that were open pits that were never cleaned and there was no water to flush either.
I'm sure you catch my drift.
It's so interesting to see how Beijing is obsessed about presenting a clean image of the city with its public toilets.
Now if only its people would follow through and more of them wash their hands after each use...
