We tend to think of swimming pools as simple round or square architectures that are just made for swimming. But some swimming pools — such as this floating pool — can be so much more than that. They can be marvels of engineering and travel destinations within themselves. Indeed some swimming pools are so unique and exciting that people travel just to see and experience them. In this video, we bring you ten of these extraordinary swimming pools and we dare you not to get travel-envy.
