Fun Things To Do With Your Colleagues In Singapore
Whether you love or hate your colleagues, they’re the ones you spend most of your waking hours with. And if you work in a team, you’d know that no man is an island, which means you really can’t function well professionally without communication. That’s not to say you have to WhatsApp them in your private time to ask them about their lives. An easier way may be to just set aside one day every year—or few months—to bond over activities. You might even find out surprising traits about your colleagues you didn’t know about all these years! Here are a few things you can do in Singapore.

When it comes to team-bonding, nothing beats a bunch of people—both tone-deaf and of great singing abilities—singing their hearts out. And the great thing about singing at a karaoke place is that no one judges you for going off-key. It’s just part of having fun!
Try escaping a room
Escape room games require a bit of brain power, so if your team is up for it, this could be a really fun activity to do. Don’t worry, it doesn’t involve anything scary. All you have to do is solve mysteries to escape a locked room. Like a real-life work situation, there are clues that you have to work on independently before coming together as a team. Try Lockdown Escape or Escape Hunt, both located in Orchard Road.
Scare yourselves at a haunted house
Halloween Horror Nights might be over, but you can always KIV this till next year. The great thing about visiting a haunted house together is that you experience the horror as a team, so the protective (or brave) ones can protect those who are scared of ghosts and zombies. Before you book tickets, make sure everyone on your team is OK to join. And by that, we don’t just mean that they say OK, but that they’re also physically fit because some haunted houses advises against people with heart problems and hypertension from entering the venue.
If you’re into go-kart racing but don’t really want to travel to Japan with your co-workers for the real-life Mario Kart, don’t fret because you can do that in Singapore. If you have a group of at least 10, you can contact The Fun Empire helps to organise go-kart races for team-bonding. Otherwise, go for the Luge at Sentosa, which is same-same but different from go-karting.
A laser tag can bring out the competitive streak in you, but a VR laser tag takes it to the next level. You get to experience zombie or fantasy games as if you’re part of those worlds. And the great thing about laser tag games is that if there’s a colleague you dislike on the opposing team and you’re passive aggressive af, you can make it your goal to kill his/her character off. Head to Zero Latency at Suntec City is a great place to go.
Have an Amazing Race
This is more of a university orientation game but hey, no harm playing it among yourselves if you have big enough a team. The downside is that this requires a lot of logistical coordination and manpower (and players too), so this is only doable if you have a big team.
