More toilets for women set up at Guangzhou South Railway Station

Guangzhou South Railway Station has set up two more toilets for women recently in order to save female passengers’ time when queuing for toilets. They are respectively located at the 302A and 302B areas of the third-floor waiting room in the station.

Guangzhou South is one of the busiest railway stations in China, especially during Spring Festival. “It always takes us women a long time to wait for a bathroom”, said a passenger surnamed Shu.

Toilets are equipped with hooks, hand dryers and blowers for more convenience. An LCD screen showing the weather forecast will be placed on the washstand.

“More toilets can save us from many awkward situations”, said Shu.
