Mode of transportation for this team building Amazing Race
One of the highlight of the day was that teams traveled by different mode of transportation, by skytrain, subway, taxi, river boat and tuk-tuk.
The Amazing Race from start to finish
Before taking of the race, teams had to solve the human knots puzzle, whereby delegates standing in a circle with their hands crossed and holding each other. Then they had to untangle the knot without releasing their hands. Blue team solved the problem first and headed towards the exit. Team green followed suit. Once teams left the hotel, they went on with their facilitator to the first location and then to the next until they completed the challenge.
Team blue returned back to the meeting room first and was announced the winning team, accompanied by thunderous cheers from the blue team.
In spite of the rain, teams had great fun and feed-back was positive.
"Thank you for arranging our team race on Friday. We enjoyed and had fun. We really appreciate all facilitators they were very helpful throughout the race."
