A Chinese hotel has built what might just be the world's scariest swimming pool.

The glass-bottomed pool, at the Holiday Inn Shanghai Pudong Kangqiao, partly hangs over a 24-storey drop.

Offering a birds-eye view to the street below, the cantilever pool is designed to make guests feel they are swimming in the sky.

The 30 metre-long and 6m-wide pool was designed by Singaporean company Chan Sau Yan Associates and is the first of its kind in China.

"We wanted to provide our guests a unique swimming experience, and let them feel they're vacationing even in a bustling city," a hotel spokesperson said.

One impressed hotel guest said: "I felt as if I was flying in the sky - I could also enjoy the beautiful scenery of Pudong from here."
