Lavish is not a word normally associated with this economical hotel chain, but the Holiday Inn Shanghai glass bottom swimming pool is opulent, to say the least. While the rest of the luxury hotel's design is easy on the eye, it's all about the pool for this beauty in the sky.
At a towering 24-storeys, the protruding pool sticks out over the ledge of the hotel where swimmers are met with a surprising twist. The swimming pool is equipped with a glass-bottomed floor that allows visitors to look down at the bustling Shanghai streets. This is one dip in the deep end that is not for the faint at heart. The experience is described as "swimming over the air" as the pool cantilevers over the lofty accommodation.
If your local dive is not giving you the necessary adrenaline rush, take a plunge into the Holiday Inn Shanghai glass bottom swimming pool.
