With only 2 Malaysian Ringgit, one can swim at the fresh water pool at Coronation Pool in Taiping. It’s a public pool so, one can’t really expect 5 star facilities and service. As for me, it’s a place that’s good enough for kids to swim and have fun. I would just have to close my eyes and not try to think so hard whether they clean the pool regularly or not. It’s better not to know these details. J
But I think it’s better to go there during the off season. We went there on a holiday and so, the pool was crowded. Maybe, we can bring our kids to swim there next time. But if we will also try to do a little bit of research because there might be other good swimming pools in the area.
