Burkinis at LCSD Swimming Pools and Beaches

The request was successful.

Dear Leisure and Cultural Services Department,

I would like to ask whether women can wear burkinis at LCSD swimming pools and beaches. On your website, it says that swimmers can put on a clean white t-shirt. Burkinis are not always white, and for religious reasons come with a pair of pants. Are they considered "proper and clean" swimwear, as stated on your website? http://www.lcsd.gov.hk/en/beach/atten-ge...

Thank you.

Yours faithfully,

Agnes Yip
