9 Water Activities to Keep You Hella Cool

Congrats on surviving the hottest week in Shanghai this year!
Bad news is the temperature won't be dropping much in a while, which means...
time to jump into the WATER and get WET!
What's a better way to cool down than diving into a pool, rafting on the river, or better yet,
partying on the ocean or getting drenched at a music festival?
Excuse the overflowing water puns, but let's dive right into this awesome list of water activities!

You may know already how to drive, but do you know how to sail? No? Well know's your chance to learn, and bond with your squad in the ocean (lake) breeze away from the city crowd! You will be instructed by a professional coach so no worries about getting thrown into the lake!
