World's Scariest Hotel Pool? Holiday Inn Shanghai's Glass-Bottom Pool Hangs Over 24-Story Drop (PHOTO)

Posted: Updated:

When it comes to hotels, a room with a view is desirable, but a pool with a view is something special, especially when that view is 24 stories straight down.

Part of the hotel's 30-meter indoor pool hangs out past the building's edge, and is constructed with a glass bottom, giving swimmers the sensation of swimming in the sky.

A spokesperson for the InterContinental Hotels Group, parent company of Holiday Inn, told CNN:

"We wanted to provide our guests a unique swimming experience, and let them feel they're vacationing even in a bustling city."

If swimming in the sky is not exactly your thing, maybe you'd prefer a dip in the world's largest swimming pool, in Chile's San Alfonso del Mar Resort?
