Toilets are necessities, but rarely are they also destinations worthy of your bucket list. Lonely Planet has collected more than 100 scenic and unique bathrooms from around the world for Toilets: A Spotter’s Guide and they are shockingly beautiful.
“Whatever you prefer to call them — lavatory, loo, bog, khasi, thunderbox, dunny, washroom or water closet — toilets are a (sometimes opaque, often wide-open) window into the secret soul of a destination,” the introduction reads. “In these pages you’ll find porcelain pews with fantastic views, audacious attention-seeking urban outhouses, and ecothrones made from sticks and stones in all sorts of wild settings.”
Pick up a copy of Toilets: A Spotter’s Guide to see more of the lavish lavatories that take taking a leak to the next level. Nature’s call has never been more spectacularly answered.
