Where Does the U.S. Have the World Beat?
When it comes to what really matters to travelers the United States has the rest of the world beat when it comes to its toilets. Per a survey of 100 international travel writers, the United States has, by far, the best in the world. Western Europe may have the best castles and museums, but johns finished a distant second. Scandinavia, rated separately from Western Europe, placed third. China is where bathrooms are considered the absolute worst according to the surveyed travel writers. Almost as bad are those toilets in the Middle East and the former Soviet Union. The Soviet Union was also voted the worst when it comes to toilet paper.
