Today is World Toilet Day, started by Water Aid to help raise awareness around the fact that one in three people around the world do not have access to a safe and private toilet.
They want to change this and they’re asking people to do what they can to promote the issue and encourage people to (not literally) give a shit.
So in the spirit of things, here are ten of the most amazing loos from around the world.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy.
Cracking view from The Shard in London.
Living in the future at Sketch, London.
Try not to get stage fright in this Mexican long-drop perched over a, thankfully disused, 15-story elevator shaft.
Floating loo on Lake Powell in Arizona.
The Hundertwasser public toilet in Kawakawa on New Zealand’s North Island – not great when pissed.
With toilet bowls in the Aurora Ice Museum at Chena Hot Springs, Alaska, carved from ice, better to hover.
This loo is protected by UNESCO, as it is in a World Heritage Centre in the Dolomites, north-eastern Italy.
Lovely underwater loo in Japan’s Mumin Papa Café.
Enjoy the view of Aconcagua, in the Andes, Argentina, while on the throne.
It’s ladies only on this glorious porcelain throne set in its own walled Japanese garden.
Having a shit has never been so enjoyable.
