There are pools. And then there are pooooooools. Yes, we are talking about the infinity pools that are destinations by themselves.
What are Infinity Pools?
These pools are man-made and often are near oceans, seas, lakes, or forests, thereby giving an illusion of infinity. Go dive and swim in 10 of the world’s best infinity pools, from the largest rooftop pool in Singapore to the jungle pool that has been carved into a Balinese cliff.
Take a Dive at These Top Infinity Pools around the World
