Cool Off in Hong Kong Pools

Hong Kong summers can leave you drenched in sweat. A great way to find relief from this sticky heat and humidity is taking a dip in one of Hong Kong’s amazing pools.

Hong Kong boasts 22 public swimming pools managed by Leisure and Cultural Services Department. A single entrance ticket costs HK$17 on weekdays and 19 on weekends; discounts may be offered to people with disabilities, full-time students aged 3-13 and seniors.

Swimming provides many health advantages beyond exercise and socializing, including reduced blood pressure, anxiety reduction and depression reduction, improved cardiovascular health and even skin complexion improvement. Engaging in three swimming sessions each week may even increase energy levels as your body burns more calories per hour!

The top Hong Kong pools are not only well-kept and clean but are also enjoyable for all members of the family to use. Popular examples include Ma On Shan pool which features giant water slides – one is 9m tall! Kids love Ma On Shan pool’s mushroom and tree-shaped fountain as well as three leisure pools – two main training and Olympic pools plus diving pool!

Jordan Valley offers numerous splashy water activities for young children. Beyond lap pools, there are kiddie slides and water-squirting dolphins/sharks/fish/animals to ride upon as well as floating mini aquatic animals to sit upon; and after your water activities, enjoy cooling off with some shaved ice!

Alternative summer photo locations could include W Hong Kong’s luxurious 76th-floor swimming pool with breathtaking views of Victoria Harbour and city skylines – perfect for an Instagram-ready shot this season!

If you want the convenience of building your own pool without all the hassle, a professional can make life much simpler. They will help find an appropriate design and size, source quality liners, install pumps and filters, set everything up seamlessly and provide warranties should anything go amiss.
