Found best pool for laps Its at Olympic Stadium. 50m olympic

It's a common complaint; health and healthcare in Cambodia is basic at best. Here is the forum to share information about doctors, hospitals, dentists and all other health-related issues, and for Dagenham to nag us about healthy breakfasts.

Beautiful clean. $2 per visit. The whole place looks like ruins around it but the pool is perfect.

Look up Olympic stadium you will find it, in phenom phen

I had been asking locals around for a week, nobody knows where one is. Then I find out its 500m from my hotel!

I swim 3 times a week, and I have never been in the Olympic stadium pool. Maybe it's time to check it out. Last I heard, there were no lockers to keep your stuff in. I dont fancy the walk from moto parking to pool in my budgies.

The other pool worth checking is the new one out at prek pnouv, between NH5 and NH6. Free access for now, I believe.

I bet the locals pee in the pool. Anarchy without consequences.

I don't know why you say that, I was there recently and it's been refurbished. If you think it's bad now you should have seen it before. :-?

The pool at Phnom Penh sports club turned my stomach & I stopped going there.
The number of people I have seen gobbing and snorting snot rockets into the water...

I dread to think about what is going on under the water line.

At the risk of being labelled a snob, I guess there is a direct correlation between admission price and the cleanliness of the water.

I saw a thing on FB that there's open swimming at Morodok Techo National Sports Complex. No idea if it's good or not, but the picture of the pool looked legit.

Superfit allows little children in theirs :barf:

When did the price increase at Olympic? I paid 2500 in 2013 or so.
