World's Greatest Public Bathrooms

Sky Arena Observatory, Shanghai Financial Center, China

The 94th-floor toilets at Shanghai’s Kohn, Pedersen, and Fox-designed landmark, known as the “bottle opener,” take the title of the world’s highest-altitude restrooms, at a vertigo-inducing 1,388 feet. Gain access via the observatory entrance (admission from $14), where the elevator will shoot you skyward to the first of three viewing platforms. You can make use of the gleaming stainless-steel urinals or bidet-style toilets that have dramatic views over the bustling Bund below.

Where to Go: 100 Century Ave. at the intersection of Dong Tai Road, in Pudong.
