What a sight

A beautiful glass toilet. Great scenery.

Man doing his business.

Not a combination many would like to see - or be seen in.

But that is what you get near Shi- yan Lake in Changsha, in central China's Hunan province.

A popular tourist park has added the "exciting" new attraction for visitors. The toilet block is made almost entirely of glass - including the walls, floor and roof - and offers fabulous views of the forest below - and other people using the facilities.

Cubicle walls, even those between the men's and women's sections, are separated only by lightly frosted glass, reported the BBC.

The park unveiled the toilet block to curious visitors on Thursday before the official opening today at the start of the National Day holiday.

Unsurprisingly, few visitors have dared to use the loos.
