I've been to the Peninsula Hotel washroom. We went there just because everyone was making such a fuss over it. After ordering a few drinks we headed to the washroom to see what the big deal was. I was kind of underwhelmed.

I came. I saw. I pooped.

There is a mens room in the Mauritius airport that looks right out onto the tarmac. Peeing in front of an airplane full of people is not that easy.

2 best bathrooms views I've ever personally had:

1) Bathroom at Everest Base Camp.
2) Bathroom in Assisi, where the window overlooks a massive vista.

I saw this on Fark a few months back. Kinda disconcerting.

My toilet has a full panoramic view of old hustler magazines.

The bathrooms at the American Airlines Center are two-way glass, so you can see the city below. Pretty awesome, except that one room's glass was initially installed inside out.

I always take the best view with me, looking straight down.

I liked the toilet on the top floor of the Chemistry library building at my university. No-one ever used it, but it was cleaned daily.

I've used the one at Boston Basin. I've also dropped a deuce on the summit of Mt. Baker. I'm not proud of it, but it had to be done.

I wandered into the bathroom of a bar at the top of the Mandalay Bay in Vegas and found myself amazed as I peed in front of a giant wall of windows looking out across the city. Of course I was half drunk at the time, so it may have been less impressive than I thought.

Kokanee Glacier in B.C.
There is a toilet like 25 feet in the air. (for the snow I imagine)_
You have an incredible view of the mountains and it's fun to count how many seconds for your poop to land.

There is a restaurant in Sanibel Island in Florida in which the mens urinals look over the restaurant via one-way glass.

I think you took the wrong door.

Fully agree with #1, awesome view. Otherwise Mt Sinai is a close runner up, so much so that I have made my little bro and his wife promise me they'll use it when they are there next week. (damn it was difficult to avoid any #2 jokes, trying for highbrow today, failing)

By far the best bathroom ever is the Exxon in Freeport, Maine. I swear nobody else ever uses it. Every morning at 7 I have a seat, take care of bidniss, buy myself and orange Full Throttle and ease right on into my day. It's always clean and not one soul enters when I'm in there. I love it.

I thought you could pee pee and poo poo inside a spacesuit?
Plus, everyone knows the best view of pee pee is on a dead hooker's face.

wasn't it the virgin mobile dude that had a bathroom with an open view on the water? On his personal island? I vaguely remember seeing that in a wired....

Nah, the best place on earth to do your business is the summit of Triple Divide Peak in Glacier Park, Montana. Pee on the summit and your urine will eventually find its way into the Arctic, Pacific, and Atlantic oceans. That's marking your territory.

That's odd. I've actually used several of those loos. It's odd because my normal MO is that if there is a toilet around, I'm in a location where there are too many people.

About that toilet in the guard tower at Alcatraz,......didn't Clint Eastwood blow it up with a LAWS rocket in one of the Dirty Harry movies? The photo doesn't show any plumbing coming out of the bottom of the toilet, where does the waste go to, is there a holding tank or did somebody lug a toilet up there as a joke ?

Google "Tooth of Time". There's a backpackers toilet near the top that looks out over all of New Mexico called the crapper of time.

Isn't "two-way glass" just called "glass"?

I've used the ptb of which you speak. I've also climbed every mountain visible in that photo. Thanks for making me all nostalgic.

one of the best views of Melbourne is from the urinals on the 35th floor atrium of the Sofitel. Melbourne Farkers?

I figured the pipe went down the middle of the stairs.

Speaking of toilets with a view, this reminds me of a story I like to tell about when I visited Beijing in the winter of 2003.

Backstory - I'm the kind of guy who gets traveler's dump. If I travel and my body clock gets messed up, it takes me 3-4 days until anything moves.

Anyway, I was working on helping a friend start a business in Beijing in a building that was getting remodeled. Things were still in a state of disarray, and they had just installed US style toilets over the top of the typical Chinese troughs.

The 3-4 day mark came along finally, and I urgently had to use the toilet. So I ran into the bathroom as quickly as possible. I could barely get my pants down and gave birth to a monster. It smelled as bad as it was impressive in size. The problem was, as I sat down and closed the stall door, the toilet was so far forward (due to the toilet being mounted over the trough's drain hole) that I couldn't shut the stall door. The door banged against my knees and flung wide open. It wouldn't be so bad, except every single toilet in that bathroom had big bay windows that had an exceptional view of the apartment complex across the alley. Many Chinese families, that afternoon, got full view of me with my pants around my ankles. But hey, like that French commode in TFA, I could at least open a window!

That wasn't so bad, except I went to flush - no flush. I looked in the bowl, and there was no water. I looked underneath the tank, and there was no pipe to connect water. It hadn't been installed yet.

So, then I had to explain to the night watchment, who spoke no English (and me speaking no Mandarin), that I just managed to fill one of the not-fully-installed toilets with a demonic gift from hell.

I have a picture somewhere that I'll try and find.

I have to say, one of my favorite parts about backpacking is that you get the most majestic bathroom breaks that could possibly be imagined. It really makes me wonder why I even bother coming back to the "real world".

If you haven't taken a piss while looking out onto 50-100 miles of untouched wilderness, you haven't lived.
