Welcome to our ultimate beach team building activity – raft building on a beautiful beach in Hua Hin, Pattaya or Koh Samui! We challenge your group to build a seaworthy vessel out of nothing but a few pieces of bamboo, rope, and some floats. But this isn’t just any ordinary raft building team building activity. Oh no, we will add a little twist to spice things up. You’ll have to race your rafts through the choppy waves while keeping your team and your precious cargo afloat. Ok, just kidding about this part!
So, grab your sunscreen and get ready to make some waves as you embark on a journey of creativity, communication, and a healthy dose of good old fashioned fun. Let’s see who has what it takes to be the ultimate raft-building champion!
Team building in Bangkok is not only enjoyable, but also affordable. We have many options that suit your budget, schedule, and preferences. You can choose from different activities, locations, and durations. We can even customise your itinerary to fit your goals and needs.
You’re guaranteed to get wet with this fun, competitive raft building in Thailand. Our raft building activities are our most popular beach event over 15 years. Each team is given equipment to build their raft. Don’t worry, we’re always on hand to offer some tips. Teams then decide what their rafts should look like. During the planning phase, you are not allowed to touch any of the equipment.
Raft Building Equipment
Equipment: bamboo, rope, paddles and floats. The floats are usually barrels (non chemical types) PVC pipe, or rubber inner tubes. (This dependent on your location and budget) The first team to complete their raft gets bonus points. Each raft is then subject to a safety check.
Safety Checking Your Raft
We will test each raft before allowing them into the water. A few flips and shakes should tell it’s stability and if it’s going to survive the waves! Once all rafts have passed the safety requirements team takes their raft down to the water’s edge. This could be on a beach, lake or sometimes the local hotel pool.
This part of the event is the most fun. Teams climb onto their rafts in the hope that their raft doesn’t fall apart! Rafts must be large enough to carry 4 team members. A series of races and relays will see how long these rafts will last. Could this be a case of sink and swim and will your team make it back to the beach.
Top 3 Locations for Raft Building in Thailand
Raft Building Activities in Hua Hin
Hua Hin is an ideal location for any event due to the larges beaches. The best beaches are near Khao Takiab as the beaches have little to no rocks unlike going toward Cha Am. We find that the location of beaches beyond Khao Takiab best such as the ones at the Pran Buri Forest Park.
Raft Building Activities in Pattaya
Pattaya’s main beach is not suited for any this kind of team building due to the number of tourists, jet-skis and deck chairs on it. However, there are hotels with private beaches in Pattaya which we have used quite a few times.
Raft Building Activities in Koh Samui
The island of Koh Samui hosts some beautiful beaches and must be one of the best locations for raft building and card board boat building. Lamai is less crowded and as with Pattaya we wouldn’t recommend Chaweng Beach. Corporate team building event should have at least a little privacy, enabling team members to relax and become more familiar with each other. These activities are highly focused on the following teamwork characteristics.
Safety Warning – Jellyfish in Hua Hin
During the months of June to October care should be taken as there are jellyfish. We would recommend using the hotel pool if permission is granted. It’s quite easy to spot the large white variety but the smaller white and brown jelly pack a more painful sting and cause deep burns to the skin.
