Self-cleaning toilets in Malaysia

In a bid to woo more tourists, Malaysia has introduced its first self-cleaning public toilets located in the Kuala Lumpur shopping district. From AHN:
"People say toilets represent the level of development of a country," Najib said in his speech.

"The adequate number of toilets, quality and maintenance of public washrooms are a benchmark of the infrastructural development of a country," he said.

The new toilets are air-conditioned and are outfitted with a seat cleaner that automatically cleans after every use.

The facilities also include a baby change station and seats for children.

Consumers will be charged one ringgit or $0.28 dollars per use.

The government is hoping to place 23 toilets around Kuala Lumpur, more so in major shopping districts and tourist sites.
