Most people don’t give a lot of thought to going to the toilet, but this list of some of the world’s most fun and funky loo’s; toilets which offer the most amazing views, might just change their minds. So here we go..
1. Mt. Whitney Throne
An outdoor toilet set on a rocky shelf, overlooking snow-capped mountains. It is sited on a wooden pallet, with no discernible flush or other amenities on site, but who cares when the view is this spectacular?
2. Toilet On The 68th Floor Of The Shard, London
The facilities at the UK’s tallest structure offer a fine view over the City, with a corporate grey, chrome and white scheme.
3. Seoul Tower, Korea
Three state-of-the-art urinals along a curved window overlook the cityscape, with the added bonus of a central handwashing station. There is a chance you could drift off and forget what you went in there for.
4. Commerzbank Tower, Frankfurt, Germany
Like the Seoul Tower, this offers a row of urinals looking out over the city, although these are bunched together and more functional-looking. They still offer a great view, however, looking out over Frankfurt’s skyscrapers and the Main river.
5. Toilet With A View In Sapporo Jr Tower, Japan
The Japanese are known for their simplistic designs and this single urinal tucked into a corner window is no exception. In pure white, with white tiles surrounding it, it’s the perfect place to clear your mind while admiring the view over the city.
6. Toilet View From The Moon Nightclub At The Palms In Las Vegas
Rated in the top five of Sin City’s nightclub bathrooms, this very glamorous water closet looks out over the twinkling lights of the world-famous Las Vegas strip. You might feel you are on another planet.
7. Bugaboos Toilet View
Another outdoor toilet, which, like the Mt. Whitney Throne, looks out over stunning snow-topped mountains. It’s made of thick green plastic, but offers slightly more privacy, with built-up sides.
8. Mount Shuksan, Washington, USA
At Mount Shuksan’s sulphide glacier base camp, in Washington, USA, the outdoor toilet gives a view over Mt. Baker. There is a little privacy as it is situated behind a rock, but you might want to take a blanket to put over your knees to stop them freezing.
9. Toilet Island, near Placencia, Belize
A real desert island in the middle of the Caribbean Sea, Toilet Island has white sand and palm trees, with an indoor toilet that Robinson Crusoe would have loved.
10. Eco-Toilet, British Columbia, Canada
Campers will be familiar with composting toilets like this one, hidden in the depths of the Canadian forest, at Taylor Arm Provincial Park. It’s in a beautiful wild spot on the side of a lake, but watch out for the bears.
11. His ‘n’ Hers, Jericoacoara Beach, Brazil
These cute little shacks made from palm leaves and set on the sand are much nicer than most municipal beach toilets, and add to the vibe at Jericoacoara, which has been dubbed one of the world’s best beaches.
12. Jonsknuten, Kongsberg, Norway
Another basic toilet set in the mountains, but it does offer shelter and a roof. It overlooks the peak of Jonsknuten, but in order to enjoy the view, you will have to leave the door open.
13. Krafla, Iceland
Is it a toilet or a piece of modern art? This is what most hikers who stumble across this funky lavatory near Krafla geothermal power station probably wonder. They can also freshen up with the somewhat less modern shower behind it, which sits in the middle of the plains.
14. Outhouse, Sagarmatha National Park, Nepal (Pictured Above)
A helpful sign saying ‘Toilet’ makes it clear what this corrugated iron shack in the Himalayas is. The gorgeous peaks of Ama Dablam mountain sit alongside it.
