Important Notice Please Read - CLICK HERE

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the more than 20,000+ facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times; we cannot tell you about the availability and cost of swimming lessons; we cannot help you find your children’s lost goggles or bathing suits.

We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their access policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include email addresses and hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.

The data in each listing is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editors become aware of a change but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about three years to complete; in many places, prices will change two or three times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.

For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. Please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with your area and visiting for the first time.

To our English users: For reasons described in the FAQ, county names shown the listings in England are the cities' and towns' historic counties, not necessarily the counties they are assigned to now.

Facility Reviews

I didn't swim in the 25m pool, but the 50m was (for international standards) filthy. The water was cloudy, and there was visible dirt on the bottom of the entire pool. Although the change rooms are very well lit, they are wet and smelly. (Don't forget your sandals and a lock for the lockers provided.) On the plus side, there are backstroke flags and very good lane lines.
I found the cleaniness of the 50m pool and change rooms OK. However, the water was far too warm for sustained exercise. This was in late April. Limted lanes (two) due to children taking lessons.

The 50m pool's water was as clean as it was supposed to be. There were four people using it - pretty pleasant!
The location of the swimming pool is not obvious; I had to ask my way.

Bring a lock and flipflops. Enter through the ground level door on the side of building closest to the train station. In little office on immediate left, pay 100 baht and get tickets which you'll give to the attendant on the pool deck. Change in stinky shower room. The pool entrance is at the end of a long hall.

I went on a Sunday in mid-June, and shared the lovely, 50m pool with just one other person. Unfortunately, although I was told I had until 2 PM, they actually meant 12 PM, as it's closed on weekends from noon to 3 PM.

It's a nice pool, however, there are too many children who use the pool for swimming lessons. I caught viral conjunctivitis the last time I went that took a long time to clear up.
[April, 2017]
I was there on a Sunday at 3 PM and saw only about five other people during one hour's swimming. The water visibility was fair, about a half a length of the pool. They have an Info board about the water condition, which showed the date, "pH 7.5", and "chlorine 1.5 ppm" - ideal readings. A test revealed that chlorine was actually only 0.1 ppm and the pH was way below 6.5 using a "ColorQ Pro7", which can register only down to 6.5).

Use Google Map's satellite view to find this pool. It's right behind Nimibutr Stadium if you're facing the elevated train station. We came to dive but they wouldn't let us. The diving area had ropes. The staff showed us a paper that said no diving.
[March, 2018]
The 50m pool was filthy with algae on the walls and debris on the floor. The water had a terrible taste and I felt slimy when I got out. Maybe this is not normal for this facility, but it was gross today.
