As anyone who has visited Hong Kong will know, noodles are not just food, they are an artform! In this fast-paced, fun team building activity, Noodles are the essential ingredient for a business simulation. Groups of 48-200 are divided into 12 ‘nations’ (e.g. Tofu town, Pak Choi Islands and Miso Mountain etc.) who then have to plan strategic deliveries to their neighbouring countries in order to make a delicious business deal. Needless to say, noodles are on the lunch menu.

Go Team is one of the most exciting new team building activities we have seen in Hong Kong. Using the most up-to-date technology, Go Team is part treasure hunt, part amazing race and geocaching.

Go Team is a fantastic activity to compliment a conference as the treasure hunt can be adjusted to show off Hong Kong’s best bits. Every team member’s unique skills will be tested in the race to get to the finish line.
