comment Are the hoses in toilets in Asia something I should know about?
Yes I forgot to include in my question that I actually thought the hoses with these fittings were hand-held shower nozzles because I've found combination toilet / shower cubicles in several countries. The photo is an instance of a toilet only though. There is a shower cubicle next to it which is different.

In my hostel there are good rubber drainage mats so your feet never get wet. But in a petrol station toilet in JB the other day the floor was like a swimming pool.

Does this also explain the wet floors? In which case they are also unhygienic floors?

Yes even next to western toilets. I haven't tried to see if they are also next to squat toilets.

comment Language to communicate in tourist places in Bratislava? English is sufficient?
Sure. This percentage is based on one person listening in to a conversation of another person. When two people are trying to communicate they can usually figure out a simplified common ground. Hell I've used my Spanish that way with Portuguese and Italian speakers and even made progress in Romania, and Spanish is my poor second language. It's one thing to muse over mutual intelligibility figures in theory but in practice a Polish speaker will do much better with a monolingual Slovak then say an English speaker with a monolingual Dutch person. "Very rough understanding" is all you need.

comment Is brushing your teeth in the public toilet a culture specific activity?
How do you know people do it in the toilet? I can imagine people doing in a restroom at a sink with running water? Possibly if they're doing it actually in the cubicle is to save time and kill two birds with one stone. I often brush my teeth in the shower for this reason.

I'm starting to think train or bus to Hat Yai and from there bus or minibus Krabi either way.
