Many tourists who visit Angkor are surprised at the quality of the restroom and toilet facilities. Strategically placed away from the main Angkor temples, the toilet blocks have been well-designed to blend in with their environment using a style that is both attractive and practical. The WCs are Western-style and the fittings are as good as some mid-range hotels. I have always been impressed by the cleanliness, which equals the best to be found in Europe and better than those mostly encountered in neighbouring Southeast Asian countries. Even outside the Angkor Park, the toilet facilities are usually of a high standard. Those at Kbal Spean, Banteay Srey and Western Baray Reservoir are modelled on the excellent installations in the Angkor Park. The remote sites of Koh Ker and Beng Mealea were late in getting decent toilets, but even these two sites have modern and clean WCs with loo paper provided. The photo shows the new WCs at Beng Mealea that just opened this month.
But the WCs at some outlying temples, restaurants and villages are basic, so bring toilet paper and expect to negotiate dogs, pigs or chickens in their back yards.
