There are only a few more days before May finally ends, and you just can’t decide where to book your final summer vacation.
If you are so done with the scorching heat and strong waves at the beach, leg-tiring treks in the mountains, camping or glamping in forests, and serene picnics with your family and friends, why not just look for the best infinity pool that will suit your taste?
If you’re used to staying at hotels in skyscraping cities, for sure there are pools on the top floors that seemingly let you fall over the edge because of the overflowing water. However, that is only an illusion of the glass that reflects other buildings and the sky! No worries because there is actually a space for the water to drop and it’s not raining down there!
Besides city hotels, you may also enjoy pools that are close to the sea. It would look like the pool is extended to the ocean, but there is an actual divider between them. If you have thalassophobia, then this is a great way to enjoy the beach waters without actually swimming in them.
If you love jungle vibe locations, then there are also infinity pools overlooking natural landscapes like mountains or elevated natural hills. If you can’t find the best one for you, then here is a list of infinity pools in and outside the metro that are surely instagrammable and would satisfy your summer experience cravings.

From the queen city of the south, the resort’s infinity pool faces the crystal clear waters of Mactan.
