PHUKET:-- The public toilets at Phuket International Airport have been bestowed the title ‘Best Public Toilet of the Year 2018’ by the Thai Ministry of Public Health.

“Today is the United Nations World Toilet Day. The annual day is held leads people to make sanitary toilets a priority.”

Well, in that case the bar is not really high. I was at the international side couple of weeks ago. As far as I could tell, there were only 2 toilets in the waiting lobby. 

 

Long queues to the one on the north side, less queues to the south side. 

While the toilets were clean as those should be, some of locks in the booths were not working.

 

Meanwhile in KL, they have now free showers in the toilets. It feels nice to have a shower before a flight after a day walking around.

Not been my experience. Travel in/out Singapore 5 months ago. Travel Bangkok a couple of times last few months. Toilets all good. No queues. No complaints.

Traveling Chumphon to Phuket last year stopped at a PTT station where they still proudly displayed their sign as winners of Best Public Toilet Of The Year although can't remember the year posted on the sign but it was quite a few before 2017. However, the toilets were still scrupulously clean. I have always found the toilets in the domestic terminal to be well cleaned

I experienced some of the worst airport toilets ever in the KLIA satellite terminal. Dirty, hole-in-the-ground style traps. Unless I had entered the staff loos by mistake?

 

As for Phuket, nothing wrong with them but hardly an award winner on Trapadvisor.com
