On days when the sun is merciless, working out can be a pretty challenging experience given the heat, but perhaps it can be more bearable when you’re surrounded by a cool body of water.

Lower Seletar Water Sports Centre, located in Khatib, recently opened its doors to members of the public, offering kayak and dragonboat rental from just $8 per hour.

Though it’s of close proximity to residential areas, the unobstructed view at the facility is sure to blow visitors away, and could easily pass off as a secluded island in the Caribbean.

Equipment like kayaks, paddles, and even personal floatation device (PFD) are reportedly spanking new, so you won’t have to worry about using worn-out ones.

Nee Soon MP Muhammad Faishal Ibrahim even visited the sports centre earlier last month, and as you can probably tell, he clearly enjoyed his time there.
