I wish there was a picture of the toilet in question. For a normal loo this would be quite overpriced, but since it is a big venue it might be a bigger building. And considering that it cost about the same as four average houses I am guessing it is some kind of toilet palace.

Wonder if they will have automatic flush, automatic taps, automatic soap but you have to use your hair cos there are no driers.

Is that two individual crappers or two fully functional multi-stall bathrooms? If the latter it seems reasonable.

They'll get those money by pushing those underpaid Vietnamese worker to do unpaid overtime to pay those bills.
