Water Sports in Beijing

Water sports are perfect in summer-- you can work out and never feel yourself sweat! Plus, if you are in Beijing you'll want to cool off by visiting the lakes and rivers and enjoying the natural wonders atop man-made crafts. You can enjoy swimming in Beijing as well, at exclusive clubs, in the lakes and rivers or outside town in the scenic spots.

For indoor swimming, head to the Friendship Hotel Pool, the Ying Dong Pool or the Shangri-La Health Club. You can cool off, get fit and enjoy your vacation all in one swoop. Beijing has some of the most amazing health clubs and the pools are fantastic, clean and ready to be enjoyed.

Boating activities in town are plentiful. Head to the Olympic rowing and canoe park or take a tour around Beijing by boat. Boating activities continue on Hou Hai Lake where you can paddle around in a small boat enjoying the view of the city from the water. Gui River Rafting is also available, though outside the city. The Summer Palace is a great place to paddle boat as well. The Rear Lakes and other places are fun ways to enjoy the city, the water-sporting way.

For more water fun, head to the Tai Ping Yang Underwater World, where you can explore the water activities from the inside, although safely behind glass naturally.
