Lavish water wonderland sits atop three skyscrapers and is estimated to be the largest in the world.

Architect Moshe Safdie had high hopes when he built the Sands Skypark in Singapore.  The Sands Skypark runs across three structures of  the Marina Bay Sands hotel.  The new add-on to the $6 billion dollar high-rise complex includes a pool that sits atop the hotel and is 55 stories above ground. 

The Infinity pool has attracted a lot of attention; it is nearly 500 feet in length and appears to be an edgeless pool.  If a visitor to the pool happens to swim over, they would fall into a basin that acts as a filter pumping water right back into the giant waterway. 

Sands Skypark is itself nearly 1,250 feet long and runs along a rooftop deck that in addition to the pool features shops, theaters, casinos, a museum and indoor canals equipped with an observation deck and a botanical garden.

While the casino is free to visitors, area residents have to pay a $70 entrance fee because their government says it is trying to discourage gambling among citizens.

Not only is this man-made body of water estimated to be the world's largest pool, but the hotel, which has over 3,000 rooms, is said to be the most expensive luxury hotel on Earth.  

space hotel backed by Barcelona-based architects and Virgin brand mogul Richard Branson, is expected to be in the works by 2012.
