Swimming can be an enjoyable activity for families and friends to share together while offering numerous health advantages. Swimming’s low impact nature eases stress while improving mood while increasing energy levels; according to research by one leading US university, it also reduces heart attack risk, stroke risk, high blood pressure, obesity risk and depression risk – plus swimming provides great aerobic fitness benefits such as burning calories while strengthening muscles and increasing lung capacity!

As summer is fast approaching, now is an excellent time to hit the pool and beat Hong Kong’s heat. From perfecting your lap time to unwinding and relaxing or simply splashing about with kids – Hong Kong offers numerous pools.

Hotel Indigo Hong Kong provides a luxurious experience with their infinity pool overlooking Victoria Harbour and loungers to soak up some sun while sipping your favorite drinks. Plus, their annual wellness membership gives access to both pool and spa as well as exclusive benefits!

Hong Kong boasts plenty of public pools to cool off in, but not all are equal. According to the Hong Kong Registered Swimming Pool Guardian Union (HKRSPGU), 20 out of 45 public swimming pools may only partially open this year due to lack of lifeguards – something which would compromise swimming training institutions as well as compromise public safety.

The YMCA Bridges Street Centre was the first indoor pool in Hong Kong and provides an ideal family destination.

Weekday rates start from HK$17 while weekend prices go up to HK$19; concession rates for children, students and seniors may apply.
