'Toilet theme park' is a hit in South Korea

'Toilet theme park' is a hit in South Korea

It may sound pants, but the world's first 'toilet theme park' is proving a huge hit with tourists in South Korea.


Visitors to the Restroom Cultural Park in the southern city of Suwon can learn fun facts about human poo and look around a toilet-themed art gallery.

The unusual amusement park was built in memory of the city's former mayor, Sim Jae-Duck, affectionately known as Mr Toilet.

Mr Jae-Duck had a passion for toilets and spent his life campaigning for better toilets in the sovereign state.

He was reportedly born in his grandmother's loo and even built a toilet-shaped house to live in, which has since been turned into a museum in the theme park.

The park's Lee Youn Souk said the importance of the toilet should not be underestimated.

'We just focus on eating everyday, we sometimes overlook the importance of the toilet,' she told the BBC.

'We already know upon waking up in the morning we should go to the toilet but people dont want to talk about this.

'[They are] so important for health, sanitation and water conservation.'

The city has embraced its toilet reputation and every year holds the popular Golden Poop Art Festival.

Last year Microsoft founder Bill Gates launched a Reinvent the Toilet competition, in a bid to improve sanitation around the world.

I believe this is what Jack Sim, who started the World Toilet Organization (WTO) can consider.

But it will have lost its uniqueness if we have 1 here locally too...
