A-SF99 Sigma - The One and Only Mega-Yacht

Great description and pics are on this page (and don't ask about the price, because even to fill its tank would cost you around 1.4 millinon dollars)

I have had the chance of swimming in Pamukale before it was forbidden. There are also man-made pools. The water is dense... The first time I was there I dived... and hurt myself.
The natural pools are a real dream! Too bad we are so many on this planet!

There's a pool up at the top of Pamukale where you can dive under Roman columns. It's from a thermal spring, so I was able to swim there last November. Well worth a visit.
