A trip to these toilets if you fancy a stunning view thrown in won’t be a bad idea!

SIGHTSEEING, WORLD

Resham Sengar

Resham is an avid propagandist of travel, and is waiting to turn her dreams of touring offbeat lands come true. In a world where peace is a rare commodity that even money can’t buy, for her, an ideal trip means heading to the incredible Indian hills.


If you're anything like us, you must be generally not okay with the idea of having to use a public bathroom. For some people, it is a never-ending struggle to relieve oneself during their travels and find a decent solution to do that.

Anyway, while the world may be full of unsightly poop stations, but fancy public bathrooms with stunning views also co-exist in a few corners of the globe. They can be spotted in luxury hotels, mountains paths and even schools!

Check out the posh potties here:

Barafu Camp, Tanzania

The inactive volcano, Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, is known for its baffling height of 19,341 ft. Trekking all the way to the mountain summit is an experience that avid adventure enthusiasts cherish and treasure. The steep mountain may seem like a glamorous trekking destination from the outside, but there is another thing you can look forward to—relieving yourself at the toilet in Barafu Camp (15, 287 feet)—provided you have enough toilet paper in hand.

Jonsknuten, Kongsberg, Norway


In Norway, the town of Kongsberg in the South of the country will offer you everything for a perfect holiday experience—arts and culture, historical places, great food, souvenir shops and scenic views. The oddest offering, albeit a good one, is one incredible loo that lets you get absorbed in admiring the beauty of Mount Jonsknuten located close-by.

Mount Shuksan, Washington, USA


The awe-inspiring panorama of the mountains in the Sulphide Glacier on the trekking route to Mount Shukshan will bring moments of euphoria to the visitors of this toilet. To be precise, this one lies in the North Cascades National Park of Washington DC in USA.

Thingvellir National Park, Iceland


Behold! There exists a loo in the Thingvellir National Park, Iceland, that looks as good as this. This one caught the internet’s fancy after an internet user incorrectly labelled it as a view from his school’s loo window.

Thiksey Monastery, Ladakh


Ladakh is quite known not only for its pristine, albeit freezing cold environment, but also for its dry toilets that exist due to the scarcity of water in the region. Thiksey Monastery, however, has public conveniences that let you meditate on the beautiful vistas visible from the WC windows should the need to use a toilet arise.

Keri Beach, Goa


The Querim or Keri Beach in North Goa can be defined as a long, less crowded stretch of grainy sandy and attractive waters that is an ideal spot to soak in the sun and the breeze on a vacation. Plus, the fact that you can continue enjoying the beautiful views even while answering the call of nature is a bonus of this place.

The Shard, London, UK


If you like being high, literally, then test your nerves by climbing to the 68th floor of the Shard in the British capital. The 95-storey tower is the tallest building in the country. It is located in the Southwark locality of London and houses retail showrooms, offices, residences, hotels and eateries. The wide, transparent windows of the loos have been inspiring Instagrammers to post pictures of the aesthetic side of London.

Some Safari Lodge, South Africa


At the toilet in a certain safari lodge in South Africa, only a transparent wall stands between you and the virgin surroundings of the forest. Cast your gaze as far as it can go, and you will behold only greenery and mountains as you go about doing the bathroom business.

Seoul Tower, Korea


Be it day or night, the men’s loo at the Seoul Tower in the South Korean capital affords a breath-taking 360 degree views of the entire skyline. You can find this classy toilet at the observation deck of the Seoul Tower on the Namsan Mountain in central Seoul, South Korea.

Mumin Papa Cafe, Japan


One of the best attractions of Akashi city in Japan is the ladies’ toilet at the Mumin Papa Café. The owner has spent a whopping $300,000 to increase the footfalls at the eating joint, and he is not regretting the smart move. The toilet with transparent walls has been built in an aquarium populated by tropical fishes and sea turtles. Obviously, who would resist the idea of visiting this kind of loo?
