Our tailor-made DIY Lantern Challenge is a new team building event created in early 2016 that forms part of our unique and popular Amazing Race Series! Alternatively the DIY Lantern Challenge can be customized as a standalone activity or combined with a more leisurely scenic hike and sightseeing in the local area.
Set only in selected areas throughout Taiwan & Thailand, the DIY Lantern Challenge combines the fantastic local culture, history and beautiful scenery of the event venue with individual & team creativity, teamwork, communication and problem solving to deliver a fun & active workshop that is quickly becoming one of our most popular team building events!
The famous sky lanterns are said to date back to the Three Kingdoms period (AD 220-265) when they were first used to transmit military information between command posts. Nowadays people decorate and release the sky lanterns into the air as a prayer for the coming year and hopes for good luck, with the sight of the sky lanterns rising in the the air a very special moment.
The DIY Lantern Challenge combined with our Amazing Race or organized as a separate workshop is perfect for multinational client groups who want to get out of the city & into the beautiful outdoors whilst impressing their participants with a famous cultural highlight that is hugely enjoyable!
Including traveling time, the DIY Lantern Challenge & Amazing Race will typically last 3-4 to a full day. A lot of clients also include a wonderful dinner with our awards session to complete a super day out.
