Proper sanitation is a human right. The need for public toilets is growing as the urban areas are increasing. Sylhet is a metropolitan and tourist-centered city. This place is the habitat of many people and a preferred travelling destination for many. As the city grows, the lack of public toilets is also causing some problems. There are only seven public toilets in Sylhet metropolitan area. This article tries to find locations in the Sylhet metro area where public restrooms should be installed. The paper examined the existing public toilets and collected data by interviewing local residents and toilet caretakers. Observing the tourist movement in Sylhet city and studying different articles were also done to set a proper approach. The report only suggests the places where public toilets should be constructed. No design has been proposed in this study.
