Lap Swimming Pools in Ubon Ratchathani

In February I began training for a triathlon and I was surprised to find that Ubon has quite a few lap pools available to the public. Below is a list of them. I’ll update information as I hear about it changing. The hours below are during the Summer and may change once schools open again. All pools have showers. The earlier you go in the day the fewer people there are. I was surprised how many people go during the heat of the afternoon, considering the usual Thai aversion to sunlight. There is a map below.

    “Nice update”-Thanks. :-)

    I have been to the Nareenkul School pool twice. Once on the weekend and once during the week. It is better to go on the weekend as there is not many people there. There is good parking for car or motorcycle inside the grounds. The pool water is very clean. The facilities are reasonably clean.
    Today I am going to try Dong Klang which is a bit of a mission as I live in Moo Baan Nong Bok and I have a small scooter……………nothing ventured – nothing gained.

    Do any of these swimming pools have attached gyms? Leaving for Ubon on the 13th and need to find a gym to exercise. Thanks. ;-)

      Not that I’m aware of. Sunee has an expensive, small, but well equipped gym. If my memory serves me right, there is one on the west side of the road on Chayangkun Rd. not far from Index Living Mall. It’s a hole in the wall type of place but I don’t know anything about it. You could always go to Tung Sri Muang park downtown. It’s pretty crowded after 5 though.
