Restroom features modern facilities and is cleaned regularly.
The first high-quality public toilet in Hanoi has been opened at 38 Hang Giay Street in the Old Quarter, on the site of an old public toilet that few people used.
The public toilet is 50 square meters with three rooms for men, women and disabled people.
The rooms for men and women are 20 square meters each and are stone-paved and equipped with modern facilities.
Each room has a hand dryer.
The doors are painted bright orange and the toilets are cleaned regularly.
The toilets are also conditioned, with the temperature set at 28 - 30C.
The room for disabled people is 10 square meters.
Mr. Nguyen Manh Quan, who lives nearby, said providing clean toilets like this leaves a good impression on local residents and tourists about the Old Quarter.
The Thang Long SP Trade & Real Estate Investing JSC, who built the toilet, is also building two more, at 5 Hang Giay Street and 50 Gia Ngu Street. The total cost of the three new toilets is estimated at VND2 billion ($89,360).
According to the Hanoi Department of Construction, Hanoi has about 340 public toilets but they fall short of what people expect.
