Top Swimming Pools in Singapore for a Refreshing Dip

Foreigners can generally use public swimming pools in Singapore. However, there may be certain conditions or restrictions depending on the specific pool and its policies. 

For instance, some pools may require non-residents to pay a higher entry fee compared to residents. Or if it’s in a club, a member would need to sign in their guest (local or foreign) before being allowed to use the pool.

The best swimming pools in Singapore are just a few laps away, so let’s dive into them with this guide.
