It looks like something out of a fantasy comic book, but the photo above is actually a luxury hotel in Singapore called the Marina Bay Hotel.
That boat shaped thingy located at the top of the structure is actually the Sands SkyPark. This unique structural masterpiece, designed by visionary architect Moshe Safdie, floats atop the three soaring Marina Bay Sands hotel towers 200 meters in the sky.
At the top of the 55 story building is a 150-meter infinity swimming pool.
How awesome is that!?!
You deserve a break today, so join me on my pictorial vacay…
Swimming at the Marina Bay’s infinity pool could definitely be an issue to someone with a fear of heights, but it’s not as risky as it looks.
The water in the infinity pool appears to end in a sheer drop, but it actually spills into a catchment area where it is pumped back into the main pool. The pools have two circulation systems. The first functions like that of a regular pool, filtering and heating the water in the main pool. The second filters the water in the catch basin and returns it to the upper pool.
The platform itself is longer than the Eiffel tower laid down and is one of the largest of its kind in the world. At three times the length of an Olympic pool and 650 ft up, it is the largest outdoor pool in the world at that height.
Besides the obvious attention grabbing infinity pool, the hotel has 2500 rooms and a full casino.
There’s also a mall inside to spend your winnings and shoppers can ride along an indoor canal in Sampan boats styled on traditional Chinese vessels from the 17th century.
Isn’t it awesome? I can look at these photos forever…
Hopefully my future ex-husband is taking notes on where I want to spend our honeymoon.
What exotic destinations are you looking forward to visiting?
