The hot spring in Sembawang is a peculiar attraction in Singapore. First discovered back in 1909, the hot spring was popular with villagers who believed that the water had healing powers. Later on in 1922 when the site was acquired by soft drinks giant Fraser & Neave (F&N), the water was bottled and sold to the public. During the Japanese Occupation, the place was converted into thermal onsen baths.
With such a fascinating history, it is only right that the place is restored and revamped for the community's enjoyment. Reopened in January 2020, the new Sembawang Hot Spring Park is where visitors can learn about the history and geology of the place, reminisce about the old kampung days by strolling through the fruit trees and edible plants, and of course soak their feet in hot waters at the pool or the wooden basins provided.
