A Unique Hot Spring
There are countless options to relax and release all that accumulated tension we get from work and the daily stress of life. One can opt to go for a massage, take a yoga class, or perhaps simply get some quality rest. But if you’re looking for another way to relax those tense muscles, then this unique venture might just interest you .
If you’ve got nothing better to do on a lazy weekend anyway, then why not go to Singapore’s one and only natural hot spring. Indeed, we have a hot spring! And its name is Sembawang Hot Spring.
Located along Gambas Avenue, between Sembawang and Yishun, this hot spring doesn’t quite resemble the usual serene and picturesque natural hot springs we see on art illustrations or on travel shows. Sembawang Hot Spring is actually contained in a well that is locked inside a red-brick enclosure. Yes, it’s not the typical hot spring where we could immerse our tired bodies. Nevertheless, it’s still a blessing from nature. In fact, some locals believe that the water from the spring has healing properties. They believe that it can relieve aches from arthritis and rheumatism. Some also believe that it can cure skin conditions like eczema.
Because of these believed healing properties, most of the people who frequent this hidden gem bring basins so they could create their very own foot bath. And the good thing about it is that the spring’s water is actually free! You could even bottle up the water if you want to experience this spring water in the privacy of your own home.
Sembawang Hot Spring might not be as grand as the hot springs in other parts of the world, but it is undeniably unique and well-worth visiting even just once in a lifetime.
