Where Is the Bathroom In Indonesian Language

If you want to learn Bahasa Indonesia with me, you can just join my group. You can check it out on the About Me page.

So, let's get started!

Asking Where Is the Bathroom

To ask where the bathroom is in Bahasa Indonesia, you can use this phrase.
Toiletnya di mana ya? (Where is the toilet?)
You can hear how to pronounce this sentence below.


Or you can say like this,
Kamar kecilnya di mana ya? (Where is the toilet?)
Kamar kecil is a polite way to address the toilet. In literal meaning, kecil means small, and kamar means room, so literally kamar kecil means [small room].

You can hear how to pronounce this sentence below.


So, that's how you ask where the bathroom in the Indonesian language.

Numpang ke Belakang Dong?

Now, let's learn how to ask permission if you're in your friend's house, and then you want to go to his/her bathroom.

You can use this sentence,
Permisi, saya boleh numpang ke belakang? (Excuse me, can I use your bathroom?)
This is the polite version. You can use this sentence to somebody that you just met, or if your Indonesian friends take you to one of their friend's houses and then you want to go to the bathroom. You can use this sentence.

Actually, the literal meaning of this is if translated into English is,
Excuse me, may I go to the back?
Ke belakang means to the back, but we know the meaning of this, that someone is asking permission to use our bathroom. So, we don't take this in its literal meaning that is going to the back.

This is how you pronounce it.


If you are very close to your friend, you can change the polite version above into this sentence.
Bro, gue mo numpang ke belakang, dong?
The meaning is the same, the difference is this is only for close friends and the previous one, you can use to anybody.

This is how you pronounce it.


Or, you can omit [bro] and [gue] and just say this,
Mo/mau numpang ke belakang, dong?
And this is how you pronounce it.


I think that's all for now. I'll talk to you soon and bye-bye.
