The 24th floor swimming pool with transparent floor

Only people with a real head for heights will want to take a swim in the new pool at The Holiday Inn Hotel in Shanghai, China.

Part of the swimming pool, which is located on the 24th floor, extends over the side of the building. Furthermore, the bottom of this extension is transparent, giving a stomach churning view to the ground far below.

The 30 metre-long and 6m-wide pool was designed by Singaporean company Chan Sau Yan Associates.

“We wanted to provide our guests a unique swimming experience, and let them feel they're vacationing even in a bustling city," a spokesperson from InterContinental Hotels Group, parent company of Holiday Inn, said.

"I felt as if I was flying in the sky - I could also enjoy the beautiful scenery of Pudong from here," a swimmer said.
