A wry view of life for the world-weary

Toilet Of The Week (7)

This week’s featured carsey is to be found in the Shiyan Lake Ecology Park in China’s Hunan Province. The newly opened toilets, I learned this week, offer spectacular views of the forest and the lake so that even when you have to answer your personal call of nature you can continue to enjoy the scenery.

Such convenience comes at a cost, though. The walls, ceiling and floor of the cubicles are made of glass and so you can be seen going about your business, although the area between the floor and just above the toilet seat is fitted with slightly frosted glass to preserve modesty.

I understand that since they were opened in time for the Chinese National Day’s holiday they have attracted lots of interest but few punters have been brave enough to use them, citing concerns about privacy. There’s always a spot behind the trees, I suppose.
