A classically trained dancer, physical education teacher, certified pilates instructor, Ling is now a full-time kayak guide with Kayakasia. She graduated with an honours degree (Psychology) from National University Singapore and holds a Diploma in Physical Education. Eager to pursue her passion in outdoor adventure and kayaking, she had lead kayak expeditions in Thailand and Indonesia, sharing her love for water and nature with her guests.

“Paddling always brings me excitement and wonder. The landscape, nature, people and their culture make each trip memorable. Being on the waters is also a humbling journey of endless discovery and learning. The insights gained is more than what each paddle will take me. I would like to be for as long as I can, this ‎life on the waterways.”

On land, Ling continues her pursuit in dance and movement. An expert in various forms of Greenland rolls, she is currently learning wushu, of which sword-play is her favourite!
