Marina Bay, Singapore
This massive infinity pool in Singapore sits atop the 57-story Marina Bay Sands hotel, with sweeping views of the city-state’s skyline. The 490-foot pool is cantilevered over the hotel’s north tower. Only hotel guests are allowed to swim and sip their cocktails by the pool, but others can purchase a ticket to the observation deck to soak up the view.
