hello I was wondering if anyone could help me. I am a
design student studying in England. Our current project is one for the brand 'speedo'. I was wondering if you have any information or views on your swimming pools in your country. Alot of the information I have been reading online has informed me that the pool conditions are poor as well there being a lack of lifeguard supervision. If anyone could get back to me with your opinions this would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
Can't give you recent information, but in my past experience, in the US pool conditions and supervision is generally pretty good - meaning, well, I can't remember wanting to complain about anything beyond maybe the Ph was not right (too much chlorine), and that they were sometimes crowded. No real problems in Hong Kong or Paris either - I'm a fairly enthusiastic swimmer. Yes of course there must certainly be exceptions to 'good'. Your comment about your reading about pool conditions and supervision is very vague - where is it that all these pool conditions are so bad? And in comparison to pool conditions - where - England? What are conditions that are not 'poor'? Obviously nowhere is anything perfect.
This is an expat site. Do you want to know about pools in Kunming or pools in 'my country'.
Kunming has many pools, some nice and well staffed, some old and not so nice. Try being more specific with your questions, you might get some better answers.
There are lots of reviews and articles about swimming pools here on GoKunming. Try a quick search.
Thank you for your help. We have created a survey in relation to swimming in China. If anyone could fill this in in would be greatly appreciated. I would really like to get local knowledge and opinions. Thank you in advance!
Any pools with water slides or diving boards? Would be great to find a pool that offers more fun than just swimming laps.
@san I've been to half a dozen pools in KM, but never seen water slides of diving boards. I believe there is a water park somewhere near KM...
The swimming pools in China range from dirty, hazardous with lack of supervision to top world class conditions with excellent service and qualified lifegaurds. Hope this helps @jessicantu...
If my memory serves, I think I recall seeing a water slide (looking through side windows) at Fubao resort. Note this is NOT the FB Fishing Port Natatorium, but the other one. If you drive from Kunming and find Fubao Lu, at the end of Fubao Lu there is an abrupt T junction where the multi lane road joins meets the single lane local road. There is a big orange roofed building right in front of you, that is it.
Buses go there, if you drive there is lots of parking. It is also about 1km walk from the new international exhibition centre, I think that subway line may connect here.
NOTE, I am not sure if the resort is open all year round.
