Hong Kong Pools – The Best Places to Cool Off in the Heat

As temperatures heat up in Hong Kong, swimming remains an effective way to cool off in style. Hong Kong boasts several breathtaking natural infinity pools as well as an exciting water play area for toddlers; so grab your swimsuit and book and spend an enjoyable afternoon relaxing by one of these pools!

Public swimming pools in Hong Kong are overseen by Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD), consisting of 44 public pools located across Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and New Territories. Most pools are heated during winter. To escape crowds without going too far from city centers try Tai Wan Shan Swimming Pool located just near Kowloon with stunning views across both areas and boasting four giant slides including Hong Kong’s fastest slide that is 9m high! Alternatively there is also a round and toddler pool available here as well!

Kowloon Park Outdoor Pools offer another fantastic public swimming pool experience, featuring three leisure pools complete with waterfalls and rocks to swim through; diving pool; teaching pool; Olympic-sized training pool for those wishing to train. You can rent a floatation device free of charge. While morning sessions tend to be quite popular at this pool, if you prefer solitude go later in the afternoon.

Hotel Indigo’s luxurious infinity pool overlooking Victoria Harbor provides an unforgettable experience, offering incredible views and Instagram photo opps that make up for its relatively smaller size compared to other hotels’ pools. In addition, this pool plays underwater music that may either refresh or annoy depending on your personal taste.

If you’re on a tight budget and in search of an economical pool option, fiberglass or vinyl lining may be your solution. These pools often cost less than concrete pools and installation can often take as little as one day; maintenance requirements also tend to be significantly less frequent – though leaks could occur and you cannot change designs or add features later on. However, this does come with some drawbacks, including not being able to change designs later on.

Purchase of a pre-made fiberglass pool shell from a pool dealer and have it professionally installed is another viable solution for homeowners who can excavate their own hole and do the patio work themselves, but would rather leave this crucial phase to someone else. A qualified pool builder can take care of this phase for much less cost than you could alone; additionally they may stub out a plumbing line for future additions such as waterfalls or slides – making this option especially ideal for anyone planning on expanding their pool in the future.
