Five of the World’s most expensive toilets
You probably know of all the expensive homes and resorts in the world. But here is a look at some of the most expensive toilets in the world. The first on the list is the $19,000,000 Russian-design toilet system that is installed on the American side of the International Space Station. The toilet comes with leg braces that help position astronauts while they do their business, while the system uses fans to suck everything into a septic tank where it uses a three-step filtration process to make all wastewater into extremely pure drinking water. The second spot goes to Hong Kong’s “The World’s Most Expensive Gold and Jewelry Sparkling Environmental Friendly Washroom”. Built by Hong Kong’s Hang Fung Gold Technology Group in 2001 and located in their “Hall of Gold”, this toilet is used only to showcase the ‘technological brilliance’ of the company. Even though visitors cannot see this $5,800,000 washroom anymore, it still remains one of the most expensive washrooms in the world.
The third place goes to Shanghai’s Moon River Art Park Toilet that took approx $602,000 to construct! It attracts curious visitors who want to know where all the money was spent! According to the Park’s marketing manager, the toilet, housed inside the man-made cave, is decorated like a grotto with stalactite-like water faucets. The fourth position goes to the royal “Dagobert” Wooden Toilet Throne, which is worth $14,123. As you raise the lid of this throne, the music to ‘Le Bon Roi Dagobert’ plays, helping you ease into position, and in true medieval fashion the flush is activated by the pull of a chain. Built from ash wood and decorated with hand painted designs inspired by Dagobert, the last ruler of the 8th-century Merovingian dynasty, this one is definitely a class apart. The last place goes to the contemporary designed Toto Neorest 600. At $5,800, it is the most indulgent and modern toilet with features like automatic hands-free lid opening and closing, heated seat, automatic and remote hands-free flush, automatic and self-cleansing system, water conserving dual-flush mode, warm air drier, and air purifier. A really unnecessary list, it gives a whole new meaning to the term – Money down the drain!
