Swimming is not only an effective way to beat the heat this summer, but it can also have numerous health advantages. Swimming reduces stress and anxiety while improving heart rate and blood circulation – as well as increasing metabolism! Plus it makes an engaging family activity!
Hong Kong is known for its shopping and dim sum, but did you know it’s also home to some stunningly picturesque pools? From swimming pools inside hotels to natural infinity pools on mountainsides, there are numerous places in this city where swimmers can go for a dip.
While swimming offers many health and wellbeing advantages, you should always wear a life vest for added safety in the water. While there are various kinds of life jackets on the market today, US Coast Guard approved ones are usually best available from sporting goods stores. Furthermore, make sure to always keep a swim bag or waterproof phone nearby in case an emergency arises that requires calling for help immediately.
Hong Kong boasts 44 public swimming pools managed by LCSD, located throughout the city and located all around its boundaries. There are nine on Hong Kong Island, 13 in Kowloon and 22 in New Territories; admission prices for adults vary according to day (weekdays $17; weekends & public holidays $19) with children under three being admitted free; swim suits are permissible but clothing that implies sexual content such as thongs or string bikinis is not.
Experienced swimmers or those just getting started can find something suitable in Hong Kong’s swimming pools, whether lap swimmers, family-friendly options or water parks offering fun activities for everyone in their family. Hotel pools tend to be well maintained and clean.
Swimming pools offer an engaging way to stay active throughout the summer season and custom inground pools can make an excellent addition to any backyard. Prices typically range between $30,000.-55,000; make sure you compare quotes before choosing your contractor!
