    • Phone
      6446 9195

    Long-time favorite out in Hongqiao right here. On the weekends it's usually packed with a rowdy, often boozed up laowai crowd drinking beers and listening to EDM on cheap speakers. During the week, it's a haven for hungover DJs and underemployed English tutors.... Read more

    • Phone
      6437 9800

    They say it's "only for members", but you're allowed to show up and "try it" for 150rmb during the week. That's meant to be a one-time deal, but who's going to know? On weekends it's members only. Membership gets you a year in the gym and use of the indoor and... Read more

    This is the pool in the Julu Lu compound where you find Maya Mexican restaurant. The location is excellent, and they let in non-resident shitbirds like us, too. And they're open year-round. Okay, the pool's not huge, but it's good enough for a dip. Busy on weekends,... Read more

    This pool’s got nice space for lounging and a small slide for the kids. It used to cost 70rmb a person for the day, and children under 1 meter would get in for free, but they've recently been put under new management and it seems like the details are a little iffy. Read more

    Shanghai has a beach! And it's way out in Jinshan on "line 22" which actually isn't a line at all, it's a bullet train. You can use your metro card though, and you don't need your passport. Tickets down there cost 10rmb, then entry to the beach area itself during... Read more

    This is a weird one. The pool is nice, and just a five minute walk from the Xujiahui metro station. It's run by the spa here, and they don't seem to have a license for the pool, or they have problems with the property management, or something fishy…Sometimes they let... Read more
