China’s obsession with glass doesn’t seem to stop! Recently the country took the entire world by surprise when they opened world’s ‘longest and highest’ glass-bottom bridge, despite having two other glass bridges in the Tianmenshan National Forest Park in south central China’s Hunan province. The newest addition to this craze is see-through treetop public toilets.
The solar-powered glass bathrooms opened in the Shiyanhu Ecological Park provides an amazing view of the forest and of course other people using the facility (pun intended)! The bathrooms, two dozen in number, comprises of both male and female facilities.
According to a statement in Daily Mail UK, the spokesman, surnamed Wang, said that the walls dividing different toilets and the doors of the cubicles were made of frosted one-way glass in order to ensure privacy. However, pictures posted on social media contradict the claim. Moreover, going by reports in the local media, very few visitors have dared to use it.

Along with toilets, eight additional urinals have also been installed in the premises overlooking the forests inside the park in the Golden Turtle Island. “We want to build public toilets that are different from all the others, following the low-carbon, environmental philosophy,” he added.
