International guide to bathroom reveals London Victoria's loo has made $3.3m since 2013

  • London Victoria has earned $3.3million from people using loos since 2013 
  • Some of the world's most popular include the open air urinal in Europe
  • Around 19 per cent of people have dropped their phone down the toilet

Bathroom and toilet etiquette can vary a great deal from place to place - but a new infographic should ensure that tourists are in the know. 

It aims to make sure that a bathroom visit abroad isn't an overly draining experience.

From packing collapsible umbrellas for privacy to carrying change for the attendant, it wants to make sure that holidaymakers are covered.

Japan's toilets are so advanced, the guide states, that even public loos have built in bidets and settings including the option to play white noise while you urinate

The infographic, which was created by valve experts Sloan.com, is made up of a series of facts about public loos - including pay-to-use toilets at London Victoria, which have earned $3.3million (£2.26million) profit from people needing to go in the past three years.

Some of the world's most popular toilets, the guide says, include the open air urinal and the standalone cubical in Europe, the squat toilet - which consists of bending to use a hole in the ground - in Asia, and the elaborate cubical in Japan.

The infographic also reveals that more than 19 per cent of people have dropped their mobile phone down the toilet, and highlights the must-pack items as hand sanitiser and a collapsible umbrella, which will provide instant privacy for those squatting over a hole in Asia.

Countries including Taiwan, Russia and even India are known for charging holidaymakers to use public loos, and although India charges an average price of two rupees per person, all of the profits are used to operate toilets in areas with poor sanitation.

Also in India, New Dehli is home to a museum dedicated entirely to toilets and their 4,500-year history.

In the UK, most public toilets are free to use, however those in train and bus stations are not and often bring in millions of pounds a year.

However, those looking to avoid the costs can head to restaurants or historical sites and museums, the infographic adds.
