Cape Town - With temperatures hovering just below 40 degrees Celsius in the Chinese city of Suining over the weekend, everyone (and we say everyone, we really mean EVERYONE) had the same cooling down idea.

Head to the Daying Dead Sea resort!

Photographs of the pool brimming with people of all shapes and sizes, complete with flotation devices in an array of colours have been doing the rounds on the internet, causing widespread horror among the more claustrophobic out there. 

Huffington Post reports that this isn't the first summer the resort managed to attract this sort of crowd, but that it is actually a regular sight during the hottest months. 

Check out these crazy pics and tell us... would you ever?!
