Learning to swim in Thailand

Recommended Posts

I started swimming aged 6, now in my 70's and still go swimming, strange thing is I have never been able to float, even in the sea when I lived in Australia and body surfed for hours at a time.   Not heavy boned, slim build, when I lay on my back I slowly start sinking, feet first with a slight roll.

Been looking at swimming lessons here for a child but seems a bit of a rip off.

 

10 x 30 minute sessions for 6500 baht + 2000 baht sign up - reward for sign up - swimming diaper.

 

Our lad has been in a pool 8 times to date and each time he's been in 7+ hours. 

 

Taking him for a 30 minute lesson will end in a tantrum and for 600 baht we can book a hotel close by and spend all day in a pool with him.

Surely he could stay in the pool after the lesson.

 

Where we are there is a 20M salt water pool.

 

I know an adult who tells me she is charged 700thb ...not sure if one hour or half an hour ... I will ask...that includes pool fees.

 

I see children learning very quickly as the time I swim is around 4pm and children have finished school.

 

I sometimes see group lessons...

 

It is a lovely pool ... I'll post a pic later ...there is also a small restaurant at the side...
