One of the main things that tourists need when they are on a foreign language, but they don’t actually realize how much they take it for granted is the bathroom. In most European countries, going at a public or a restaurant’s bathroom is a normal experience with nothing to comment on.

But, when you visit some countries in Latin America and Asia, you come across issues that you never thought could actually exist. Let’s see all the unusual bathroom information.

The sewer system in Mexico is VERY progressed as you can see. This means that if you throw the tinniest bit of paper, the whole thing will block causing much trouble.

You see, hygiene is not the only issue you can come across in bathrooms in different places on the planet. Where there is great hygiene, expect to be charged a little bit on your food, drinks and even a bathroom fee.
