Destinations – Beijing – Unusual sight

traveling with my Elderly Traveller China Crotchless Pants

Something I have noticed only in China is the children wearing “kaidangku” (“open-crotch pants”).

Everywhere you look little kids, toddlers are wearing these pants that are like  a pair of chaps from an all male review.

Match these pants with the custom of letting children relieve themselves wherever and when ever they want to.

traveling with my Elderly Traveller China Crotchless Pants You can be walking down a street, in a park, in the grounds of an historic monument and if your walking behind a child and it suddenly squats over, you must detour around as the results are like walking  your pet dog and not taking doggy clean-up bags.

Westerners get told off , even fined, about not cleaning up after thtraveling with my Elderly Traveller china pantseir dog has fouled the footpath, In China I don’t think that would be a problem as they don’t even clean up after their children. In one day we saw four children deposit in front of us and numerous have a tinkle as they were walking.

We saw the mothers pushing toddlers in  prams cages with toddlers having the open-crotch pants and doing their business through the cage bars

Outdoors is one thing.. but we even saw this in Guangzhou airport .

When your in any building with carpet and you see little stains everywhere on the carpet now you know why.
In Guangzhou airport we watched a man walking a young boy about 2 or 3  years old around the airport gate waiting area . As we had seen the open-crotch pants before we weren’t looking specifically at them until they walked right in front of where we were sitting and mum noticed the boy was leaving a wet trail on the carpet.  As if sensing us watching, the boy decided to take that moment to demonstrate the functionality of his optraveling with my Elderly Traveller open-crotch pants guangzhou1en-seated pants by squatting down near the windows and doing a little poo.

His family didn’t even seem to notice, but it didn’t take long for  a cleaner to walk over and scoop up the poo. She didn’t clean or disinfect the carpet, just scooped up the poo.
Now I should say that most of the other Chinese people who saw this clearly disapproved of this particular potty training method in doors at the airport. The family might not have been aware this happened 20 foot from the toilets.

An hour later we once again saw the little boy wee on the carpet again.

TIP – Don’t sit on carpet in airport


On a brighter note, I took a photo of these toy soldiers being sold on traveling with my Elderly Traveller Beijing odd sightsTienanmen square. They had GI Joe Uniforms on but someone had crudely stuck Chinese flag on them. It made me smile
