Pools in China are so crowded, you don't swim, you go for a stand
As a kid, going to the pool in the hot summer was nothing but fun, swimming all day and night and jumping into the cool water with your family and friends. Of course, it's the same all over the world. China, too. But in China, it's just a little harder to swim as far.
Everybody loves to go swimming. And so everybody does. And when you live in a country with a population of over 1.3 billion people, that can get to be a problem. As was popular in Japan in the 80's (and still to this day), in China there are giant, artificial wave inducing pools within entertainment complexes. And when the temperatures climb to 35 to 40 degrees Celsius, a lot of people want to go jump in the cool water.
What comes crashing down aren't waves, but walls of human bodies as they get carried by the water. You're literally touching so many people, it's like a crowded train but in a pool with artificial waves.
When you look at the photos, you'll see that everyone is having fun. Maybe put it on your itinerary if you're lucky enough to go to China. You just might enjoy it.
