Top 5 Hong Kong Pools to Cool Down in the Heat

The heat of a Hong Kong summer is notoriously brutal. Whether it’s the blazing sun, the insufferable humidity or torrential rain, a hot day in Hong Kong can leave you sweaty and sticky all over. Thankfully, there are plenty of places to cool down this summer in the city. Here are some of the best hk pools to get your splash on.

Located at the seafront of Ma On Shan, this pool complex is huge and has something for everyone. On one side, there’s a large main pool with spectator stands that hold 1,200 viewers and on the other, there’s a few smaller training and teaching pools as well as a toddler’s pool. But the real star of the show are the four waterslides that zigzag over the water, two of which are said to be Hong Kong’s fastest.

With a wide variety of pools, including lap swimming pools and diving pools, this expansive Wong Chuk Hang complex is ideal for swimmers of all ages and levels. And for the kids, there are also two fun little pools that feature water slides and other fountains to play with.

This pool in the heart of Wan Chai is a favourite amongst families. With a main pool, an outdoor leisure pool and a Jacuzzi, there’s enough space for the whole family to swim and relax. Plus, if the kids can’t seem to use up all their energy in the water, they can head across to the nearby Belcher’s Bay Park for some fresh air and a run around the outdoor playground.

With three sessions a day, this Sai Kung pool is perfect for parents who want to do some laps and work up a sweat while the kids splash away in their own pool area. And there’s a good selection of waterslides and other activities that the kids can enjoy – think water-squirting dolphins, sharks and other animals, floating mini aquatic creatures to sit on, a waterfall and water fountains, plus a pirate ship complete with water cannons!

There’s also a family changing room on site.
