As companies find creative ways to sell, so are their efforts in coming up with unique team building activities to strengthen the bond among their employees.

If done effectively, team buildings could be an essential key to company success. Exposing employees in an environment that’s far from an office setting could expose a playful and relaxed demeanor which one does not usually get to see in the confines of the office.

Aside from introducing a new environment, part of having a successful team building is making sure not to make it feel like it’s another day in the office. To do that, facilitators should not explicitly introduce an activity as a lesson in how to be an effective team player, but rather, focus on meaningful activities that would forge an authentic experience that will surely encourage communication and collaboration among team members.

Here are top destinations to try on your next team building:

  1. Breakout (real-life Escape room game) | Serendra Piazza, BGC Taguig – feel like a detective as you plan an escape with your team in a locked room within 45 minutes. Players are expected to use their ability to find clues, gather information and tools to unlock a combination or find the location of a key.
  1. Sandbox | Alviera, Porac,Pampanga – think: giant playground. Sandbox will definitely bring out the kid in you with its unusual attractions like the Giant Swing, Aerial Walk Challenge and, roller coaster zipline (Avatar One). They also offer other outdoor activities like wall climbing (Adventure tower), archery, and ATV and UTV rides that passes through the Pasig- Portrero river.

Pro-tip: it’s best to come early in the morning before 10am to enjoy Sandbox amenities without having to worry about being burned by the sun’s harmful rays.

  1. COSA Firing range | Coron, Palawan – for that out-of-the-box experience, introduce your team to Sportshooting and release some stress. Introducing the team to a new activity that challenges their comfort zones could make them come together in a different way.
  1. Ecotour | Puerto Princesa Palawan – if your team is the nature-loving type, bonding experiences could never go wrong by exploring the famous Underground river, snorkeling, or simply taking the Honda Bay Island Hopping tour.
