Why there are many nice words for toilet in English language (restroom, shower room, water closet, etc) and in Russian there are only two – «tualet” and “ubornaya” while the rest of the terms are too slang? Language and thinking always go together…
Thailand is the country of many and clean toilets (“hon naam” – “room with water” in Thai language), you’ll never be left alone with your trouble here. Terminal 21 – a shopping mall on Asok BTS Station – stands out from the rest of Bangkok malls by its huge Oscar figure and.., fabulous designs of its “rooms with water”. I have checked them all, from top to ground, and really enjoyed myself. Toilet as an art object – it’s cool!

Another floor down: Konnichiwa, Japan!
Designers have done their best here!
Kimono is required here!
I wonder what these inscriptions are about?
Another floor down: Ciao, Roma!

Almost down: Aloha, Hawaii!
The colors call for surfing!
Time for Reggae Music!
