HK Toilet: Cafe Gray



















One of the great things about Hong Kong is undoubtedly it's toilets. The pollution, the anti-cycling stance, the most expensive housing stock in the world, even the mainland madness on Canton Rd- ALL CAN BE FORGIVEN after a nice panoramic pee in a 5 star hotel! Kicking off a little series where I shall try to avoid the gollum like creatures jumping out of marble access panels, here is cafe gray's toilet on the 49th floor of the Upper House hotel in Admiralty. Full props go to the use of mirrors and sculpted dual access basin (good for avoiding gollum). And of course, the view speaks for itself with a dual take on the lower Peak 'burbs on the right and Wan Chai through to Kowloon Peak to the left. Perhaps a little more glamour could be injected into the urinal experience, but that said, cafe gray certainly takes it's place in the lexicon of Hong Kong luxury lavatorial landscape. Mix with high tea and cream scones.
