On top of the world..

I saw an article recently about the swimming pool at the Shard in London, and how their infinity pool is the highest in Europe. Around the world there is real competition now for hotels to place there pools in stunning positions, allowing them to save valuable ground space – where once it was enough to have a pool in a sunny peaceful position, the wonders of modern architecture and construction allow designers to push the boundaries in pool placement.

This is especially useful in for indoor pools in cooler climates such as England, but has also given us jaw-dropping sights like the ones listed in this article., many to be found not to far from Australia in Asia, with cities desperate to make every square inch count.The pool top of my ‘must try’ list for years now is not surprisingly on the top of many lists, the infinity pool at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore may be dwarfed by the Shard, sitting at ‘only’ 57 stories above ground, but that can easily be forgiven when you look at the sheer size of the thing, 150 metres long and straddling three hotel towers this pool looks spectacular in every sense, definitely not for the faint-hearted though!

Marina Bay Sands pool, not for the faint hearted!
