Intercontinental Hotel: Hong Kong
For me, the hot, sweaty days of summer have always been synonymous with the smell of chlorine. Rising temperatures force me to flock to a community or backyard pool to seek a little relief from the sun. Unfortunately, these swimming spots can get a bit stale, not to mention overcrowded. But a few hotels and resorts have designed the most innovative, incredible swimming pools in the world to give swimmers and sunbathers a welcome respite from the usual chlorine chaos. From relaxing to adventurous (swimming next to sharks?), these pools are anything but ordinary.
