"Where is the Bathroom?" - Finding the Toilet in 62 Languages

Welcome, everyone, to the most ambitious blog we've ever written here at Bathroom City. It has been formed in response to a problem you have likely faced if you have ever travelled abroad. 

There you are, enjoying your vacation, when the call of nature arrives. You look around, but an obvious sign for the toilets isn't jumping out. Panic rises as you realise you have no way of asking the locals where the nearest bathroom is. 

Fear not. Below, you'll find a list of helpful phrases in 62 different languages, that cover all but a handful of the world's population. You can search by language name, or by country. Some countries have several prominent languages, so they may appear more than once, but for the most part each country will be listed under its offcial language only.

 Country: China, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, Singapore

 Note: There are two forms of Chinese - Mandarin and Cantonese. These refer to spoken Chinese - the written is split between simplified (S) and traditional (T). Basically, it is complicated. China predominantly write in simplified, and talk in Mandarin. Taiwanese write in traditional, but talk in Mandarin. And Hong Kong natives write traditional, and speak Cantonese. The hope is that you will be OK, as the pronunciations for both are vague similar.
