Infinity pools are designed to make swimmers feel as though they could swim right out of the pool and into the world around them, and guests of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel feel as though they could swim right into downtown Singapore.  The infinity pool atop the luxurious hotel is the largest outdoor pool in the world– it sits over 650 feet above the street below.  The pool itself is designed to make swimmers feel as though they take a huge risk by swimming near the edge, but there is a small catchment area where water quietly cascades to.  Opened in 2010, the pool is three times that of an Olympic sized swimming pool and offers guests gorgeous and thrilling views of downtown.  The next time you take a dive in your pool, imagine being 55 stories off the ground; perhaps the thought will make your summer swim more refreshing.
