Chinese officials came up with a seemingly foolproof plan to ease the perennial National Day holiday problem of women having to endure long queues when waiting to use toilets at mainland tourist attractions, mainland media reports. They have switched the use of some of the men’s temporary toilets at Beijing’s Forbidden City, which always attracts huge crowds during the seven-day holiday, so that they are now only for use by women.

The change certainly helped to reduce the waiting time for women, who regularly have to queue up to use the toilet Unfortunately it is now the men visiting the attraction that are facing long queues instead. A Palace Museum employee told the Legal Evening News that men would be relieved to learn that they would face long queues only during peak holiday times. The change was widely welcome on mainland social media, although many people have continued to complain about the general lack of adequate toilet facilities at mainland tourist attractions. Chinese officials have promised to carry out a "revo-loo-tion" to improve public conveniences at the nation’s top attractions, following complaints about long waiting times and poor hygiene standards from both mainland visitors and travellers from abroad. Last month the National Tourism Administration vowed that tourists queuing to use public conveniences at such venues should not have to wait in line for more than 10 minutes.
