5. Toilet: $2.5 Million and Toilet Paper: $1.3 Million
And you thought Kanye and Kim spending nearly $1 million for mere gold plated toilets was extravagant… In Hong Kong we find the most expensive restroom in the world. Built by the Hang Fung Gold Technology Group in 2001, it has 24 carat gold and jewel embellished walls and a solid gold toilet. Not sheets of gold, but solid gold. Said to be worth $2.5 million, the toilet remains unused and intact. At least if the Hong Kong economy goes belly up, they can always liquidated their asset.
