Fortunately here the public toilet is free of charge. I heard that in France the public toilets usually need to charge from Euro 0.3-2 and I must say that it is a bit expensive and it is really inconvenient for the tourists.

As far as I know, all the public toilets here in Canada are free. If some of them charge, I haven't heard of it.

It depends on the areas, some are free, and some of the self-cleaning ones are charged with 20 cents (in Euro currency).

They are free here and a public place can refuse to let you use theirs if they want to.

Really? It sounds serious if you get denied when you have to use the public toilet.

I haven't come across a public toilet yet in France where I've had to pay. Perhaps I've just been lucky.

@JudyEv when I was in Paris with my relatives, we were looking for a public toilet but we haven't found one and so we just ate at MC Donald's and used their toilet.

No and I think this is ridiculous. They do in England when I lived there.

Public toilet in the Philippines do charge a small amount too. They said it's for the maintenance of the toilet so it's okay. But what happens in reality is that some public toilets are not clean and worst, some of them smells or has a problem with the water supply. But thankfully, not every place in my country is like that. I guess it also depends on the city ordinance or how well the authorities of a certain place do part in maintaining public toilets or public places.

But charging Euro 0.2-3 is not little money. Especially it is expensive to pay Euro 3 to go to the toilet

@youless Nope my friend that's why it is public toilet meaning that the money used in making such public toilet comes from the taxpayers money.

I know no toilets in Hong Kong will charge money But I occasionally see negative news about the tourists complain that the public toilets are not enough in Hong Kong. I think perhaps they forget they can use the toilets in the restaurants and shopping malls.

Some public toilets are free in France, there is an app for the smartphone to locate the toilets and to know if they are free or you need to pay. Here the public toilets are free.

Most public toilets here especially in malls are free. In tourist spots they charge 5 pesos which is not that expensive. You know you help them in the maintenance and cleanliness of their toilets

Here the public toilets are free but private people charges. If you want to pay money then you can expect neatness there.

@youless it depends where the public toilets is located. Shopping malls, restaurants and cafeterias have to provide toilets for the customers.
