Engage in Watersports

Watersports is nothing new to me and I have tried many exhilarating water activities like 5 in 1 Watersports activities at Kenting (Taiwan), Sea Kayaking tour at Phuket (Thailand), Sailing and Snorkeling at Boracay (Philiphines), Stand-Up-Paddling at Bali (Indonesia), etc. Wanted to try white-water rafting when I was in Nepal but I didn’t get a chance to do so for this coming weekend trip to Bintan, I will love to try
