IN late May, CNN Travel named 12 cities that are best for swimming, and Hong Kong was ranked fourth. Three European (歐洲的) cities, Copenhagen (哥本哈根), Zurich (蘇黎世) and London (倫敦) were ranked first to third in that order.
Hong Kong is the only Asian (亞洲的) city on the list, despite the many beach towns in Southeast Asia. The CNN writer pointed out that the Shek O (石澳) beach has “amazing views”.
The writer also explained that because of the hot and wet weather in Hong Kong during summer, it is the perfect time to go swimming. But if a pool is more to the reader’s taste, the one on the 76th floor of the hotel W has an excellent harbour view.
