Just down the street from the hostel I stayed at on Shanghai’s Yunnan South Road was this construction site, complete with toilet at the canvassed entry. I’m pretty sure it was only used as a garbage bin and not as an actual toilet.
I took the elevator up 423 metres to the 94th floor Observation Deck of the Shanghai World Financial Center, the city’s second-tallest skyscraper, where I found some loos with a superb view of the streets below. The picture from this pissoir was certainly a sight to behold.
Of course I continued up to the 97th and 100th floor observatories which both delivered phenomenal views but as a hunter of spectacular toilets, nothing could compare to the window above those urinals.
10 Wusheng Road, Shanghai: the site of the largest public toilet facility in the city at 230 square metres, and one of the few standalone double-storey restrooms I’ve seen around the world.
