Travel Photo of the Week — Peeping Tom Toilet

Posted by - February 17, 2012 | Category: Asia, Escapes, Thailand

Toilet humour -- peeping tom toilet sign -- man looking over bathroom stall at woman

People are going to start thinking I spend all my days in the toilet.

Previously I posted a sign from a Honolulu Loo and also a not-so-humourous graphic toilet sign from Indonesia. This one is from Thailand’s Pangsarapee Green Resort near Doi Tung, Chiang Rai – presumably to draw the male customers in. Or perhaps to keep female customers out. Who knows.

I was on my way to see Ian Ord from Where Sidewalks End when I stopped off here for a moment. Ian’s currently volunteering with the Pennies for Papa Foundation just down the road. I’ll write more on the Foundation and the good works that it’s doing for the Akha people of Northern Thailand later.

In the meantime, what are thoughts on the sign? Creepy, cool, or somewhere in between?

Or is this just the wrong kind of toilet humour…

    1. The dude is peering over the wall into the ladies toilet — I think it’s a tad on the creepy side. The washrooms were quite nice, but I felt like a bit of a pervert going in there for a look. 🙂

  1. Even trying to put it in (cultural) context (Asia/Thailand), I still can’t, for the life of me, figure out…. WHY? Why would the proprietor do such a thing? Unless… for some weird joke?

    Then again, maybe to get noticed and/or marketing. YOU noticed it after all, and now you’ve plastered the resort name all over the net. I’d say it’s brilliant marketing. 😉

  2. This photo is funny, and disturbing, all at once. What are they trying to say here!!?? Ha!

    I honestly wouldn’t know where to go in if I came across it looking for a loo!
