Have A Soothing Foot Bath & Relax At The Newly Revamped Sembawang Hot Spring
Singapore's only hot spring is now back with a modern uplift and interactive water play feature!
Sembawang Hot Spring, located off Gambas Avenue, was closed in 2017 for renovation and expansion works and it recently reopened on 4 January 2020. 10 times its original size featuring four-tiered cascading pools, interactive water features, cafe, and a floral walk, the Sembawang Hot Spring is the new weekend activity for Singaporeans.
Scroll on to find out more about Singapore's only hot spring and its benefits!
The four-tiered cascading pools at Sembawang Hot Spring helps to lower the temperature of the geothermal spring water, with the top tier at the hottest with a temperature of 70℃ and subsequently cascading down to a much cooler 40℃.
Dip your feet in the hot spring foot bath and enjoy its healing effects. Natural hot springs are known to aid with minor aches, ailments and skin conditions. It may even have beautifying effects!
You can even bring your own buckets and tap your own spring water at 70℃ if you hate being under the sun. Bring your buckets under the shade of the leafy foliage and enjoy the foot bath without scorching sunlight shining on you.
There are interactive water features that your child (or the child in you) can play with at the hot spring! You can also learn about the history of the site and geothermal processes behind the formation of a hot spring through interpretative signs placed around the park.
The Floral Walk is another place you should head to while you are there! Check out fruit trees and edible plants, such as mangosteen and pandan, that are commonly found in kampungs, and flowers commonly seen in the 1960s and 1990s along the path. The rustic environment is further enhanced by unpaved paths and naturalised streams flowing from the hot spring, which mimics the freshwater swamp forest landscape.
If you are looking for a weekend activity that is free and has healing effects, head down to the Sembawang Hot Spring soon! As with any national parks, be respectful of the nature and don't feed any wild animals or harvest any fruits from the area.
