Toilet Culture Park in South Korea

Toilet Culture Park in South Korea

While we often hear about some or the other theme park displaying wide range of cultures, a recent report talked about the theme park in South Korea, the Toilet Culture Park. Perhaos is the first of its kind.

It represents a wide range of bowls from Korean traditional squat toilets to western bedpans. It is located some 45 kilometres south of Seoul, in the South Korean city of Suwon. It was in the month of July that it was started and since then, it has been getting attention from many.

'I think it could change someone's perception. Particularly, if there are a little uptight or embarrassed about toilet or toilet habits, because this makes you laugh. And you see that it's not a secret', said US tourist, Malissa Sheets-Nygard.

It was further told that the site of the museum was once home of former Suwon mayor, Sim Jae-duck, and that adds more to its value. There are chances of it being expanded to another level in the year 2014 so that more and more Koreans are being made aware of kind of public toilets were used since long back. It might also help in making people aware about the best sanitation habits, thereby serving a lot than mere exhibiting toilets.
