Toilets: A Spotter's Guide

Nature's call has never been so beautifully answered

Loos with incredible views, lavish lavatories, outstanding outhouses - all are featured in this pictorial guide to the world´s most stunning toilets. Whether they´re high-tech or arty, amusing or amazing, each toilet has a photo and a description of its location. More than 100 restrooms to remember are featured, from Antarctica to Zambia.

As any experienced traveller knows, you can tell a whole lot about a place by its bathrooms. Whatever you prefer to call them - lavatory, loo, bog, khasi, thunderbox, dunny, bathroom, restroom, washroom or water closet - toilets are a (sometimes opaque, often wide-open) window into the secret soul of a destination.

It´s not just how well they´re looked after that´s revealing, but where they are positioned and the way they´ve been conceptualised, designed and decorated. Toilets so often transcend their primary function of being a convenience to become a work of art in their own right, or to make a cultural statement about the priorities, traditions and values of the venues, locations and communities they serve.

The lavatory is a great leveller - everyone feels the call of nature, every day - but being ubiquitous doesn´t make it uniform. Around the planet (and beyond it, see page 12), toilets have followed various evolutionary pathways to best suit their environment.

In these pages you´ll find porcelain pews with fantastic views, audacious attention-seeking urban outhouses, and eco-thrones made from sticks and stones in all sorts of wild settings, from precipitous mountain peaks to dusty deserts. So, wherever you´re reading this, we hope you´re sitting comfortably.
