Drinking champagne on a self-constructed raft in Hua Hin
A fun and meaningful raft building team exercise for corporate groups
Have you ever thought about visiting Hua Hin as part of your company week-end, team outing, corporate get-away, meeting or team building event?
Hua Hin, a small seaside resort, just 200 km South of Bangkok, offers stunning beaches, sumptuous seafood, a large variety of accommodation for both individual travelers and corporate groups as well as plenty of activities for teams away from home, like team building, fishing, hiking in the national park, visiting temples and many more.
The best stretch of beach is undoubtedly from Hilton to Marriot, with Centara Grand in between.
Our group of 10 executives from L'Oréal Thailand stayed at Marriott, a five-star resort with super friendly staff. state of the art meeting facilities.
The first day was arrival, check-in and lunch, followed by the raft building exercise.
The objective was to build a floatable raft for 10 participants, using bamboo, plastic strips, plywood, inflatable truck inner tubes and rope.
The raft as been pre-constructed with numbers attached to each piece, so participants could assemble it like a jigsaw puzzle, due to the time constraints of only 90 minutes. Were creativity was needed, was how to attached the inner tubes to the foundation of the raft.
Participants showed fun, dedication but with an easy going attitude, and lots of informal networking during the event, which was an important as aspect of the team building.
After about 1.5 hours, the raft was fully fixed, and ready to test. What a relieve, it was not only floating, but floating well.
Hua Hin at this time of the year sometimes have high waves, and we were lucky just experiencing knee high waves. Still, it was a challenge to steer the raft outside of the shallow waters into deep sea.
The group successfully reached the buoy, attached the raft to the buoy and opened the bottle of Champagne. A cheer broke out when the objective was reached and executives enjoyed the time on the raft drinking Perrier-Jouët.
Evening was at leisure and program on the second day was indoor leadership training with Rob Davies.
