Extending over 32 metres on the 10th floor, Sofitel So Bangkok's infinity swimming pool is a luxury lap pool with low chlorine content. The water seemingly flows over the negative edge into the park and skyline beyond, giving the impression of swimming in mid-air, high above the bustling city streets. Tunes are piped in directly for a watery soundtrack, while at night, underwater LED lights create ever-changing shades of vibrant colour. An oasis lawn offers a sun-soaked spot for tanning or starlit venue for exclusive evening events.
