Top 5 Hong Kong Pools

Gambling Dec 18, 2023

When the mercury rises and it becomes a bit too hot to be outside, you can always go for a dip in one of Hong Kong’s 44 public swimming pools. Some even have kiddie pools and water slides, making them a fun family day out! And, the best part is that they’re cheap as chips. Adult admission is HK$17 during the week and HK$19 on weekends (and public holidays) with concession rates for kids and adults over 60 available.

The Sai Kung pool has a main Olympic-sized swimming lane along with free form and training pools to work on your technique. They also have a leisure pool where you can relax in the water and multiple lifeguards on duty to make sure your visit is safe and enjoyable. The little ones will love the four waterslides, two of which are said to be Hong Kong’s fastest! And if you need to take a break from the thrills, the leisure pool features whimsical water installations including mushroom and tree-shaped fountains.

This Kowloon Park pool is a great spot for the whole family. They have three outdoor leisure pools complete with waterfalls, rocks and a footbridge, as well as an indoor pool, diving pool and teaching pool. Plus, they’re heated in winter so you can keep on swimming even when it gets chilly.

Perched high atop the International Commerce Center, this pool has floor-to-ceiling windows that give a spectacular view of Hong Kong Island and Victoria Harbour. Their pool is surrounded by a relaxing terrace where you can lay back on lounge chairs or get your tan on the sun deck.

Aside from being a fantastic workout, swimming is also an amazing way to reduce stress and anxiety. Just a few sessions of swimming a week can have positive effects on depression and other mental health issues, as well as boost your energy levels by increasing your metabolic rate.

The Kerry Hotel pool has stunning views of Hong Kong Island, making it a fantastic place to soak up the sun and enjoy a few drinks at their popular terrace bar, Red Sugar. The pool is also heated so you can swim and relax in the summer.

If you’re looking for a more exclusive pool experience, check out the pools at some of Hong Kong’s luxury hotels. These private pools have incredible facilities and amazing views, and can be a little more expensive than the public and government-run ones. However, they’re worth it for the top-notch facilities and unforgettable experiences. For example, the Ritz Carlton’s swimming pool on the 118th floor is one of the highest in the world. Their incredibly beautiful pool is surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows and LCD screens that display images of tropical fish, bubbles, clouds and beach scenes.
