Public toilets and urinals are very important, especially in a country like India, and, if possible, they should be made available at all locations for public convenience. The absence of it not only cause inconvenience to public, but the goal of total cleanliness that the country is attempting to in next few years through PM Modi’s ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’ or Clean India initiative will be achieved only when toilets are built and made available at all locations.
But we will not be talking about the importance of public toilets or urinal sheds or cleanliness here in this post. What we will be talking about is something very interesting – quirky public toilets and urinals from around the world!
It seems like men in Netherlands love chatting or talking to each other while they are peeing. These open urinal sheds are everywhere in Netherlands. Indeed one of a kind!
Peeing into a mouth? This urinal can be found in B52 Club in Bucharest, Romania.
3. Chongqing in China
This one is in a 1,000-urinal toilet complex in Chongqing, China, that celebrates bathroom culture. The complex spreads over 30,000 square feet, and the four-story public restroom features urinals shaped like curvaceous women, crocodiles and even the Virgin Mary. Crazy!
This firehouse-themed restroom is can be found in London pub.
Fancy urinals, Aren’t they?
6. Reykjavik, Iceland
OMG! Who are those people? Criminals? Can it get any weirder?
Seems like the Chinese believe in group hugging. Or, seems like they have no problem seeing each other’s…you know what.
This is so similar to the Indian ones in the rural areas, right?
9. Seoul, South Korea
An ice gallery in Seoul has an interesting ice bathroom for the tourists. Would be interesting to use once to strike an attractive selfie with it!
Traditionally, Japan, like India, had a squat toilet system. But they have improved a lot and have done great development on hygienic front, and now the country has highly developed toilets with features which require no use of hands or toilet papers. Additionally, they have a brilliant sanitation system to manage the waste materials.
It is said that only 10% of the toilets in Japan are squat toilets today.
It is said that the situation in Malawi is different (and better) now, and there are many well-developed toilets in the country today thanks to Sustainable Sanitation program.
12. Beijing, China
A bulletproof toilet? Nobody will dare to kill you in the toilet and you can at least do your need peacefully without any disturbance. LOL!
