If you’re going to Hong Kong anytime soon, don’t miss your chance to sit on the throne of the most expensive and lavish bathroom in the world. All of the everyday bathroom fixtures — toilets, sinks, mirror frames, toilet paper holders, wall tiles, toilet brushes, tissue boxes — are made of 24 carat, solid gold.

And to top it off, up above the chandeliers the ceiling glitters with 6,200 diamonds, rubies, pearls, and other precious gems. 

You can gain access to this regal restroom by spending $200 in the store at 21 Man Lok Street, Hunghom/Kowloon, Hong Kong, China. And they ask that you please take off your shoes so you don’t track any gold out into the street.

Read all about it and other winners of “The Golden Plunger,” the award for the world’s best bathroom, on While you’re there, you can also check out restrooms near your home or just about anywhere you want to go. You’ll find a list of reviews for bathrooms in over 120 countries. Now you can plan ahead for your international potty breaks and avoid ending up in squalid squat pots.
