World's Greatest Potties


When does a public restroom become more than just a potty? When it's one of the most swank, unusual, elaborate, artistic or well-positioned loos in the world.

Last summer, Boise Weekly highlighted some of the best bathrooms in Boise (although we don't exactly know how to explain the fact that several of them are no longer in operation other than to blame it on the potty curse, which must be something like an athlete ending up on the cover of Sports Illustrated.)

But now, Travel and Leisure magazine is upping the ante by showcasing some of the world's best public toilets. From those located 93 stories up on observation decks, perched on a hillside in the wilderness or popping out of the ground, we have to admit that we'd hold it for a little longer for the chance to check out one of these facilities.
