Looking for Affordable Swimming Pool in Metro Manila?   32 comments

I love swimming! It is a low impact, full body exercise that is really fun to do. I’ve always dreamed of having my own vacation house with an indoor swimming pool.

I remember bugging my friends for days if they knew of an affordable public swimming pool (preferably indoor) in Metro Manila. I Googled for hours but came up with just a few names.
