Glass washrooms in China offer stunning forest views

The walls, ceiling and floor of the toilet cubicles, located in Shiyan Lake Ecology Park, are almost completely transparent.

That means when nature calls users relieve themselves while simultaneously soaking in the stunning beauty of Shiyan Lake.

Washroom visitors aren't fully exposed.

A portion of the glass, from the floor to just over the toilet seat, is slightly frosted, shielding users from those who might be tempted to sneak a peek of something other than the great outdoors.

Shiyan Lake Ecology Park's glass washroom opened last week -- just in time for China's National Day holiday, when millions of Chinese take advantage of a week of public holidays to travel around the country.

'Insane. Perverse'

Social media users in China appear to be divided over the park's new attraction.

More than 14,000 comments have been posted on Chinese news site since the toilets opened.

Many plumbing supplies involve concerns about privacy.

"All the lechers will then stay in the toilets," commented a user named Fong.

Meanwhile, reader Lin asked: "Who would dare go to a toilet like this? Insane. Perverse."

Some questioned the intention of the designers.

"The toilet is another scenic spot," commented bathroom plumbing problems Weibo user Qiu.

"Such a victory in that sense."

This isn't the first public washroom in China to offer sweet views.

According to Chinese state media, a male washroom in the southern province of Guilin offers urinals mounted in front of two glass walls overlooking the flora and fauna outside and the mountains in the distance.

But Hunan province might just lead the way when it comes to building dramatic glass structures.

It's also home to the recently opened cliff-clinging glass skywalk and the longest glass bridge in the world, which towers over a steep canyon.

And for lovers of interesting restrooms, earlier this year backpacker bible Lonely Planet published a handsome book featuring wholesale plumbing supplies online more than 100 of them.

From pop-up pissoirs to clifftop drops, the gallery below shows a selection from "Toilets: A Spotter's Guide."
