This post is in continuation to my earlier post on 28th Feb. Im here with giving a short link to view the earlier post quickly.
Sai Wan Swimming Shed is the only shed that is still in service in Hong Kong. It was set by the government in the 60s to 70s in which regular swimming facilities weren’t common. It is on the brink of the Hong Kong Islands, outlining the Victoria Road and Mount Davis. It functions as a hybrid of swimming lot and photo-taking spot for photography lovers, for its vantage point which helps visitors see the small island to the West of the shed, the beacon and the sunset. Users could also get changed and store their personal belongings in the shed. After settling down, swimmers walk along the shed and start enjoying their laps.
The spot is also famous for bridal photography among Hong Kong females more loving spot. I noticed one lady walking down the stairs to get the most beautiful pictures on her memorable day, i will post the Sun set pictures from this spot when ever i get a chance next.
Location West Kennedy Town, Sai Wan Swimming Shed. Central Dist, Hong Kong . In old days the Local Chinese used this small Bridge as a swimming and diving spot. So name remained as Swimming Shed.
View of the Swimming shed way back in 1960 s, its a famous spot even for Dragon Boat Race. I have two pictures in my collection I’m sharing below to viewers to see the Hong Kong’s History Pages.
