Top 5 Hong Kong Pools
With summer just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about cooling off with a splash in one of Hong Kong’s pools. However, with most public and government-run pools getting crowded during the warmer months, why not check out some of the city’s hotel swimming facilities instead? You’ll get to enjoy a (semi) private pool, top-notch facilities and amazing views all in one go.
The best part is, it doesn’t cost much either! You can pick up a weekly pass for HK$18 on weekdays or HK$19 on weekends, and those with disabilities, children under the age of 3 and full-time students can enjoy concession rates as well.
