Q: Can anyone recommend a good swimming pool in central Beijing?

I'm living in Gulou area and could do with a good swimming pool. I keep being taken to public ones and there just isn't the room to do laps with the amount of people. Granted I was going during the summer when there are bound to be more people (I just got back to Beijing). Anyone know of any not too far away that are affordable and actually allow for serious swimming. Thanks.

Chaoyang Park South Gate (about 150m east of it) has a good pool (50m) with two lanes for serious swimmers. Not everyone in those two lanes always is serious, but in general it is quite good. Buying 30 tickets at a time gets the price down quite a bit, so I would recommend that. Also, try to swim during meal times - it is really empty then Wink

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
