Some of the public toilets in Thailand will make you want to run down the street with your pants around your ankles while crying like a baby. Finding public toilets in Thailand is nearly impossible away from tourisy places. Try temple areas, transportation stations, and near landmarks; expect to pay so keep some coins handy.

I don't see this issue mentioned on the forum often, so I feel most people don't know about this and flush everywhere - therefore I shouldn't be worried about blocking the toilet.
