A tourist site in Chongqing has gone viral online with Chinese netizens worrying that its open-air bathrooms might just draw in the wrong kind of crowd.
The colorful, fairytale-like castle may look magical, but it appears to have run out of funds while building the bathrooms. The men’s and women’s stalls on the roof have walls but no ceiling, leaving them exposed to peeping Toms from the nearby hillside.
Women who wanted to go to the bathroom were forced to take their umbrellas in with them to afford a bit of modesty.
Chinese netizens joked about the tourist’s site “cunning” business model, wondering how much they are charging people to walk up the hill and calling the place a “pervert’s paradise.”
However, the city of Chongqing has always been infamous for experimenting with daring forms of toilets, including out-in-pubic urinals:
