061111 Visit to Sembawang Hot Spring

street singapore

This was a visit to the Sembawang Hot Spring, which is along Gambas Avenue.
The Hot Spring was within a camp, with specially created area for nthe public that opens only from 7am to 7pm (opened and closed by military personnel).

The spring water was piping hot there! People were seen soaking their legs, washing or even bathing there. some were even washing their clothes and cooking eggs too.

Hidden behind the brick walls was the well that housed the water but was now locked up and restricted access to anyone. I heard from a friend that it will bricked up after someone fell in and drown in the 60s or 70s. Can anyone verify that?

Surrounding the brick walls are 3 washing area with pipes (2 at extreme corners and 1 in front of the brick wall. Note: The central tap where we took our water for mini Spa was the hottest!

There was a caretaker who will be there daily from 7am to 7pm, and stays in the small shelter. Surrounding the shelter, were signs to warn people of no entry etc… On the 2nd last picture, there was some writings on the brick wall, which is actually CURSings. It warned people from damaging the well else the offender will get some serious retributions from it.

Go and take a look if you can spare the time! Note that the place is less friendly for cars so park near the HDBs in that area and take a walk there. Remember to bring your towels!

  1. Hello, i would like to feedback to you about the sembawang hotspring incident today at 29 sep 2013. I encountered bullies and hoarders of free pails and one of the spring pools. They are two middle aged males and one female . Three person hoarding one pool and five pails. I though this POOL IS MEANT FOR ALL PUBLIC AND NOT JUST A FEW SELFISH USERS? Or have i seen wrongly, is it still the seventh month spirits guarding the area perpetually ?
