Located near the south gate of the Summer Palace, this swimming area is an excellent getaway from the centre of town, but still easily accessible and extremely reasonably priced. For 30RMB customers have access to four pool areas - a shallow kids' area, two deeper swimming areas for splashing about and a pool for dedicated laps. The whole area adds up to a substantial 10,000sqm. In addition to the pools, small bridges and an accessible green island give Liulang just the right touches for a pleasant environment. A nearby snack shop services all of your munching needs (just remember to wait 30 minutes before swimming, right?). Showers are cold water only, so best wait until the comfort of your own home.
