Using the loo and other cultural bafflements

Jump to last reply

The local economy needs foreign tourists but sometimes when cultures come to a "head," things need to be straightened out.

The Swiss have been enjoying a surge of Asian and Indian tourists but have realized they cannot accommodate all foreign customs. In an effort for clarity, the Swiss are now posting signs on how to use toilets, how to take no more than you can eat at breakfast buffets and, in some hotels, not to cook food in the rooms.

Here's a year-old story about one effort a local tourist attraction has undertaken to clear up any misconceptions on how toilets should be used in Switzerland:
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3148808/How-use-toilet-signs-erected-Swiss-railway-Asian-tourists-don-t-use-properly.html

I've often wondered how tourists who are used to other toilet procedures feel about sitting down and flushing the toilet paper down the toilet. Is it a luxury or just confusing? Does it cause stress or add to the adventure of travelling?

Looking forward to your thoughts.
