The Chinese city of Chongqing holds a weird kind of world record. The world record for the largest bathroom. In Chongqing they built a porcelain palace with an Egyptian facade and more than 1000 toilets in a four-story building of 3000 square meters (32000 square feet).
“We are spreading toilet culture. People can listen to gentle music and watch TV,” explains Lu Xiaoqing, an official from the tourist area where the bathroom is located. “After they use the bathroom they will be very, very happy.”
Among the urinals are some shaped as open crocodile mouths, some resembling renderings of the Virgin Mary and sinks shaped as female behinds. (Via www.asianoffbeat.com)
