Why Lao Dong Pool is special ?

Lao Dong Pool is right in the middle of central Saigon, it couldn’t be in a better position. Surrounded by the giant tropical trees of Tao Dan Park, and overlooked by the clubhouse of the former French colonial Cercle Sportif, this should be an excellent pool. However, there’s something sad and even seedy about this once grand pleasure pool. The ticket booth is like entering a prison, and the changing rooms are awful. The pool is big but water quality isn’t great. There’s only once lane divider, and it doesn't reach the end of the pool: swimmers have to make a 180 degree turn in order to swim back around. The pool is surrounded by a grand colonnade, which hints at its former grandeur. It’s not so bad, I suppose, but like so many old buildings in Saigon, it feels like it’s waiting to be demolished.
