I liked the magazine Traveling in Style, Oct. 20, and especially the piece "Swimming Near Cambodia," by Deborah Fallows. She made you want to go to that Siam Water Park and try those slides. It reminded me of some of the swims we've had. In Bangkok we didn't go to the Water Park. I don't think it was there in 1963, but we did swim the klong (canal) off the Oriental Hotel and almost joined the water market traffic. The boatmen laughed to see such crazy people and handed us rice cookies.

By now, everybody knows what to expect from your standard-issue ho-hum water park: body and tube slide complexes with funnels and bowls, deluge-inducing water play towers for the little ones, undulating wave pools and relaxing lazy rivers. Photos: 20 best water parks in the world Pretty much everything you typically find at a Six Flags Hurricane Harbor, a Great Wolf Lodge resort or any Wet 'n Wild. The best water parks in the world, however, have been busy adding the latest cutting-edge attractions, such as magnetically propelled water coasters, inverted looping slides, stationary wave machines and interactive water games.

October 20, 1991 | DEBORAH FALLOWS, Deborah Fallows, who would love to live on the California coast with a lap pool in her back yard, resides (and writes) instead in Washington, D.C., and swims in public pools.
I love to swim. I love the quiet monotony of doing laps, or the fun of roughhousing in a small surf. I love the thick chlorine smell of an indoor pool as much as the salty waft of the sea. I happily watch reruns of Olympic swimming races on TV. When I travel, I check out a hotel's pool before I check in. My family and I spent nearly four years traveling and living in Asia (we returned to the United States last fall).
