Our Favorite Places posted by Nantucket Staff

With Chico’s summer closing in fast, many of us are flocking to our favorite local water spots.  Tubing on the Sacramento River.  Playing in the Bidwell Creek.  Splashing in our neighbors pool (hopefully with their permission!)   While Chico’s backyard provides a wealth of water retreats, if you feel like going international - boy, do I have a recommendation for you.

Introducing the swimming pool of Pudong Kanggiao Holiday Inn in Shanghai China.   Located on the 24th story, the pool features beautifully tiled floors, high ceilings and modern architectural details - at least that is, the part of the pool that is indoors…

Yes, you are seeing this correctly.  The deep end is cantilevered, extending beyond the edge of the hotel wall and has a glass bottom.  Gives “a pool with a view” a whole new meaning!

Those who have experienced the cantilevered glass pool say it felt as if they were flying and would certainly return if the opportunity presented itself. 

If you had the chance, would you brave the deep end?  Cannonball!
