A little of the intimate: Bangkok Terminal 21 expands the horizons of toilet aesthetics

Terminal 21

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!
