All That Glitters Here Is Gold!

Lists of interesting places are always--well, interesting. A while ago one caught my attention, 10 Incredible Indoor Pools. Now I rarely pick a place to visit because of their pool but if we are ever in the remote western peaks of China, I may be tempted to stay at the St. Regis Lhasa Resort

All of the pools on the list were remarkable and pictured quite beautifully but the one at the St. Regis was quite unusual as well. I've been in pools that have looked like exotic lagoons, large pools with the infinity edge that makes it appear to be a part of the ocean and go on for ever (careful you don't swim over the edge), pools where you can swim from the warm inside to the arctic outside while still staying warm but I've never been in a pool made of gold.

The St. Regis pool is made of real gold plated tiles and is said to be the only one in the world that is. It is salt water, heated, and is called the "Golden Energy Pool." If you like bling, this is the place to swim.

The resort features butlers, plasma TVS, high speed internet, Bose sound systems and marble bathrooms. A bit pricey, the room rates start at $300. So if you happen to be visiting Tibet or want to explore the Himalayas, you might want to stop in, stay the night, and take a dip in a pool lined with gold. Last one in. . .
