"Hong Kong," and "great swimming" isn't exactly the first thing that leaps to mind. Shopping, sure, but swimming pools? Along with all its other attractions, Hong Kong is loaded with picturesque pools.
The pool at the Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong is breathtaking, thanks to the view, the altitude and, of course, the swim. On the 118th floor at 484 meters above the street in the tallest building in Hong Kong, it's the world's highest swimming pool. The ceiling and walls are made up of 144 LED screens displaying coral reefs and other nature scenes.
W Hong Kong
If you have only one nice swimsuit, save it for the W Hotel Hong Kong. On the 76th floor, its swimming pool is Hong Kong's highest rooftop pool. The hotel's signature WET deck is famous for stylish and occasionally wild poolside parties in summer. WET also features a good cocktail bar and a Jacuzzi.
One of Hong Kong's unique experiences is swimming in Hotel Indigo's glass-bottom pool. The pool protrudes from the hotel, allowing people below to see swimmers and the swimmers to do laps while checking out the traffic below. The pool is small compared to those found in other local hotels. The pool is open only to Hotel Indigo guests.
Four Seasons Hotel
The Four Seasons gorgeous infinity pool overlooks Victoria Harbor. Even cooler, the hotel pipes in underwater music, making the swim that much more wonderful. Or annoying, depending on your taste in music. The pool is open only to hotel guests.
