The Amazing Heritage Race is a fun outdoor team-building activity that takes you and your team around the fascinating sights of interest and feast on all the mouth-watering food within Singapore’s legendary Chinatown. 

Your will discover hidden talents of your team mates and forge close bonds with one another as you race around this cultural enclave following route markers, encountering road blocks, and work your way through unique challenges, fun detours and a variety of interactive tasks. The skills and cultural diversity of your team members will be tested to the max, as everyone needs to work closely as a team to solve the various challenges and obstacles in a race against the clock. 

At the end of the race, our experienced facilitators will share their observations to help you reflect on the lessons learned so you and your team mates apply the learning back at your workplace.

You will absolutely love the candid moments captured during this race, and we are certain these priceless shared memories will be fondly remembered for a long time :)

All activities, challenges and exercises are designed to focus on leadership skills, out-of-the-box thinking, effective communication and taking calculated risks. It is a great way for individuals to work as a team and to get to know each other’s strengths. We are able to customise the programme to reduce the level of physical activity if any of your team members has fitness or mobility issues.

"We were looking for a team-building activity that centres on Singapore’s heritage and food scene, which would be insightful and eye-opening for our team members, who were mostly foreign expatriates and overseas colleagues visiting Singapore.

We chose the Amazing Heritage Race programme as it is one of the very few food trails run by an external vendor in Singapore, and we love their interesting approach towards a team-building activity particularly for overseas participants. The facilitator Lesley was confident in her presentation and very engaging in opening and closing the session, while drawing out important lessons and comical moments that made everyone have a good laugh, which was particularly important for us given our rather serious work environment!

The entire programme is very well-run and all our participants had a good time. We will definitely recommend Food Playground!"

Mr Jasper Ng

"Our objective from the onset was to do something fun and bond with each other.  The Chinatown Heritage Race totally delivered that and more – we had great fun, laughed a lot, everyone played to their strengths and contributed to each challenge, and discovered new things we never knew about each other along the way.  

It was a fantastic opportunity to have a fun team building activity, sightsee Singapore and get a taste of our local food – what a great combination. Every team member was able to let their hair down, have fun and build camaraderie since all the challenges need team effort to overcome. We couldn’t have asked for a better team building activity!"   

Ms Lynn Choa
Microsoft Singapore
"We were initially considering doing an Amazing Race activity in Sentosa or Marina Bay, but eventually we decided on Chinatown due to the rich heritage element and hopefully something more out of the norm. We engaged Food Playground as you are the only service provider that conducts this programme in Chinatown.

The race challenges were all challenging and engaging, and exceeded our expectations of a teambuilding activity in asmall area at Chinatown.  The whole process of engaging Food Playground, from the first time we asked for the program details to making payment and how we conducted the entire session on event day was great.

This activity also provided opportunities for our colleagues to get to know one another better, so well done to the Food Playground team!"

Mr Brian Huang
Jones Lang LaSalle
"We truly enjoyed both the morning heritage race! We never knew that we could explore so many heritage sights in Chinatown and were amazed that it can be so refreshing and fun. The review sessions were helpful as the facilitators gave us the opportunity to share our views on the challenges faced during the heritage race.

The team-building day has indeed been invaluable in learning to foster team spirit in order to achieve goals and targets."

Ms Vivien Tan
Dexerials Singapore
"We were looking for a fun team activity that is reasonably priced, and not too energy sapping, and decided to go with the Amazing Hertiage Race.

This programme is a good mix of physical activity, discovering Singapore and fun amongst team members. The clues were well designed, and I also like the fact that it is held in Chinatown, a convenient location and an interesting area to explore. It was good fun and all our team members communicated a lot with each other outside of the bank setting, which made the relationships somewhat closer.

All in all, this was a very interesting and well-organized experience with a positive and constructive vibe. We really enjoyed it!"
