9 Fun Corporate Team-Building Activities In Singapore Even Non-Enthu Colleagues Will Like

Team-building activities in Singapore


Truth is, work becomes much more fun when we get to know our colleagues on a personal level. Besides, we’d want to know exactly who we’re spending so much of our time with, day in, day out. That’s why team-building activities that remove us from the typical office environment are necessary. 

To make it count, forget awkward dinners or the usual karaoke sessions. Head for these team-building activities in Singapore that won’t just be a fun break from the workplace. They’ll also arm you with valuable skills you can bring back to the office.

For an adrenaline-pumping company outing, KF1 Karting Circuit is probably the closest most of us will be able to get to racing like professionals. The circuit is equipped with the works of a Grand Prix-like auditorium, a viewing gallery, and even a pit lane. The track also has F1-inspired lighting for night races.

Large groups needn’t worry about taking turns behind the wheel; KF1’s track can be converted into 2 smaller configurations so 2 teams can race simultaneously. Beginners can start out by using novice karts that reach 35km/h, while those itching for an adrenaline rush have the option of advanced karts with a top speed of 110km/h.
