The shower stall has a curtain divider, and that’s it!

  1. GREG: I’VE BEEN TO A LOT OF BATHROOMS IN SE ASIA AND HAVEN’T SEEN ONE QUITE LIKE THAT. JAPANESE TOILETS ARE INTERESTING — SOME OF THE OLDER PLACES STILL HAVE A HOLE IN THE FLOOR. NOW THAT’S A CHALLENGE!! ATHALIE

    1. I totally see those all over too! But usually at rest stops and in poorer areas. The most interesting was a modern version of the hole in the ground at KL Sentral station!

  2. Most of the hotels I stayed in when we were in Cambodia didn’t even have a shower curtain! Just a large tiled room with a toilet and a shower head. And the wall dividing the bathroom from the living room/bedroom area didn’t go all the way up to the ceiling.

    1. The flat we couch surfed at in KL was just like this. Very difficult to maneuver. I imagine it might be the case when I move into my place in Phnom Penh… But we shall see. That will be an exciting experience in itself… Living alone for the first time, living in a foreign country for the first time…. So many firsts.

  3. Actually, my bathroom in very upscale Amsterdam student housing [note: in a neighborhood of million euro homes] was exactly the same, and with no curtain. Not sure this is a Southeast Asian thing. And trust me, the Amsterdam student housing was quite nice. French doors looking out onto a community garden from my large room, etc. So it’s not like they decided a curtain or bathtub would be too expensive.
