With the hotter than ever summer weather in full effect, Hong Kong pools are getting crowded. While public and government-run pools are a great option for swimmers looking to cool off, there’s nothing better than splashing around in the luxurious waters of a hotel pool. These hotels offer top-notch facilities, amazing views and plenty of ways to enjoy a dip in the water with a drink in hand.
Hongkong Pools is a daily lucky draw game that was first launched in 2000 and has since become one of the most popular in the world. The game is played online and through a mobile app, with players betting on numbers to win cash prizes. Players can also use a free trial version of the application to try the game before committing to a subscription. The Hongkong Pools app and website are available for download in the Apple Store and Google Play, respectively.
In a recent article, the Southern Metropolis Daily reported that many of Hong Kong’s public swimming pools have seen a marked increase in sewage contamination from vomit and feces. The report came on the heels of a public health warning by the Hong Kong Centre for Disease Control that warned residents to steer clear of public swimming pools because the water was infected with diarrheal diseases.
The influx of sewage into the city’s public swimming pools is a worrying sign for swimmers, as well as tourists and visitors from mainland China. The contaminated water can cause illness and even lead to death.
To combat the problem, Hong Kong’s Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) has been implementing stricter rules for the water in its pools. Among the most notable rules is a ban on smoking and spitting in the water. The LCSD has also called on all citizens to report any suspected pool water contamination to the authority.
In a statement, the LCSD said that 14 of its public pools were fully open on Thursday and 12 were operating partially, although some facilities such as leisure pools and paddling pools were closed to divert staff resources. They urged the public to check online or call before visiting the swimming pools.
Located in the heart of the city, this modern boutique hotel offers a truly unique pool experience. Their indoor pool is a relaxing sanctuary for anyone wanting to swim morning laps, while their outdoor pool is a place of pure family fun. It boasts one of the longest and highest water slides in Hong Kong, making it a must-visit for families!
