The Golden Toilet

South of Chumphon in Thailand is a rather special park called Toilet Land, or “Suan Nai Dum”. Dr. Borvon Aroonkong has collected and built numerous toilets which are on display and available for use.

The Cafe has fully fleshed out the concept with the decor. The ‘Menu Kee’ (“menu of crap” in Thai) includes ‘Cookie’ (a pun on the word ‘kee’ for crap) and Kopi Luwak (the famous expensive coffee made from beans that have passed through the digestive system of civit cats and been defecated).

There are other cafes on site that don’t follow the fecal theme in case some visitors find it too offputting to enjoy their own digestive processes. I spent the weekend scouting trips for work, so I hope the boss gives me time off in loo.

There are some nice outsoor “Health Areas” where the seating is shaped as logs (literal and figurative). This seems appropriate for a b(log) post.

The bins and water fountains are shaped as lavatories and the signs at each exhibit are made of toilet seats.

There is a Sky Toilet inspired by Avatar and an Underworld Toilet inside a volcano.

The park really embraces the inclusive philosophy of ‘Toilet for all’.

The park also includes a pineapple-sorting factory and a large OTOP shop. Here are the Tarzan and Jane toilets:

Anyone traveling in the Chumphon area should ‘head’ for a visit to Suan Nai Dum, Toilet Land.
