Swimming activities in Shànghǎi
Public swimming pools in China may not be a first choice for serious swimmers, although they are considerably cheaper than hotel pools. A shop next door sells swimming gear. Tickets are Y25 before 5.30pm, Y30 after. Kids below 1.2m get in for half price. It’s just near Shanghai Stadium.
This outdoor pool is particularly popular with expats – possibly more for pool-side lounging (got to work on that tan) than actual swimming. It’s Y80 for adults and Y50 for kids.
