Travel Tuesdays: World's Scariest Swimming Pool

The Holiday Inn Shanghai Pudong Kangqiao’s swimming pool offers an exceptional view, but many are calling it the scariest swimming pool in the world.

The indoor pool tops the 24-story hotel and protrudes from the main building, suspended mid-air.  The toughened glass construction gives guests the sense of swimming in the sky as they watch the street below them.
"We wanted to provide our guests a unique swimming experience, and let them feel they're vacationing even in a bustling city," said a spokesperson from InterContinental Hotels Group, parent company of Holiday Inn.
The hotel along Chan Sau Yan Associates, the Singaporean firm that designed the hotel, worked closely with architects and even aerospace experts to ensure the pool is safe for its patrons.
So, would you dare?
