The restroom is modernly designed, clean, and has green trees and seating areas outside. The inside uses metal material, shiny and clean. The entire system inside the public restroom uses gesture sensors, no direct hand touching to avoid cross-infection.

Outside the restroom, there is a surveillance camera system, images are transmitted to the screen inside the toilet so that users can monitor (if there is a motorbike parked outside).
