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

Hong Kong’s summer heatwave has reached fever pitch, so what better way to cool off than to jump into one of Hong Kong’s many pools? These glittering water bodies offer refreshing dips while many also offer amazing views – located within some of Hong Kong’s most breathtaking skyscrapers, these pools will leave you breathless and wanting more!

There are 44 public pools spread out across Hong Kong, so chances are one is close by. Most are run by Leisure and Cultural Services Department with adults paying an entrance fee of HK$17 during weekdays and HK$19 on weekends and public holidays; children and people with disabilities pay half price.

At the Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong’s 118th floor is an outdoor pool featuring floor-to-ceiling windows offering spectacular views of Hong Kong Island, Victoria Harbour, and surrounding clouds. If swimming isn’t your thing, relax on one of their lounge chairs or beds and look down upon life below; additionally there is also a jacuzzi and outdoor terrace available for use by guests.

Asaya offers an astounding 25-metre outdoor pool that boasts breathtaking views of the city’s skyline from day to night, making for an idyllic oasis away from city bustle and noise. Exclusive to hotel guests, the pool provides a peaceful retreat from city living while you soak up some sun while sipping refreshing beverages and snacks such as Alaskan King Crab Rolls, Strawberry Mirlitons or champagne cocktails! Upon registration at Asaya you will also receive 12 daily passes that allow frequent visits to both pools and gym.

Apart from Hong Kong’s stunning, grandiose pools, there are also smaller, more intimate public swimming pools which are open to the public and perfect for taking a refreshing dip or simply unwinding after work. Many parks feature these intimate swimming spots which offer swimming lessons as well as relaxing retreats after work – they make great family options as they tend to be less crowded than larger, more famous options!

Some of the top Hong Kong pools also boast other amenities, including saunas and steam rooms. To enhance their experience further, those wanting a massage or beauty treatment can schedule it while there – further relaxing the whole process! Changing rooms offer lockers and showers so you can come prepared for whatever comes your way during the day ahead.
