Build a Dream Team! - Speed Hong Kong Style: Dragon Boat Racing
Drums pound. Oars rip through the water. A well-trained crew works at fever pitch. The goal: bring a dragon boat across the finish line first. Dragon Boat Racing has its roots in Chinese mythology, but it's a fast-paced, exciting international sport. Each race lasts a few minutes, so split seconds matter and teamwork is everything. Your achievers will practise rowing in a team, and then take off as arms and oars vanish in a blur of speed. The power of teamwork at its best.


Build a Dream Team! - The Perfect Match
Marriage is universal. But the Chinese do it their way, bestowing it with fascinating rituals which were formalised 2,000 years ago. Competing teams will go through the entire marriage ritual, working to a deadline arranging a ceremony in an unfamiliar city, while learning the customs of a new culture - a tremendous teamwork builder for your group. After a lucky couple is selected by a matchmaker, an auspicious date is chosen using the Chinese almanac at Hong Kong's most popular temple. Then begins a welter of preparations: selecting costumes, food, jewellery, and arranging a banquet. On the big day participants hold a traditional Chinese wedding ceremony which resonates with ancestor worship, still a mainstay of local culture. Afterwards, comes a lively and joyous feast. The players will have proved themselves as a team and will have gained fascinating insights into an important rite of passage in Chinese culture.

Your winners will divide into teams and explore a district on foot or on public transport, taking pictures that tell the real story of Hong Kong's people.

More importantly, your achievers will have worked together to gain new insights and communicate them - skills which they can apply daily in their working lives.

Lion Dancing has been a part of Chinese culture for thousands of years. A fascinating spectacle of costume, colour, music and movement, the Lion Dance is seen as an important ritual which is essential for an auspicious start to any venture. It exorcises evil spirits and brings good luck to all spectators. It also takes agility, co-ordination and stamina - great team builders. Incentive winners, divided into two teams, assume the various roles: the two halves of the lion, the "Happy Buddha" who leads the dance, and the orchestra. There follows a short, intensive period of instruction, after which team members design and paint the traditional banners for their lions. The two teams compete on a variety of levels, learning new moves, skills, and testing their powers of teamwork to the limit.

In an effort to find the treasure, your achievers might visit historical buildings or monuments, or explore the city's bird, fish and flower markets, where they'll learn the significance of plants and animals in Chinese life. Apart from the prize, your team will come away from the hunt having found the essence of Hong Kong, as expressed in its architecture, its streets, its most cherished landmarks.

Balance. Focus. Strength. Qualities needed by both ancient warriors and modern business people. The martial art of kung fu is famous worldwide, thanks to Hong Kong son Bruce Lee, but few Westerners are aware of the more peaceful art of tai chi swordplay. Used in ancient times to improve mental reactions and health, tai chi swordplay involves slow movements performed while holding a metre-long wooden sword. The goal is to achieve a supreme level of balance, and to harness and focus one's energies. First, a master teaches your top achievers the basic movements. Then, 10-person competitive teams, or "battle units", are formed to compete and display their new-found swordsmanship. A fitting reward for your best warriors!

Feel Fabulous the Chinese Way! - Acupoint Massage : Vital and to the Point
Where did acupuncture come from? Did someone notice that soldiers wounded by arrows recovered from ailments in other parts of their bodies? Did semi-divine sages first map the body's meridians? Whatever its origins in legend, centuries of trial and error have evolved into a refined and detailed clinical methodology. The Chinese believe that adding pressure to certain points on the body can enhance the circulation of qi and blood. In Hong Kong, acupoint massage is often used as a remedy for many kinds of pain.

Victoria Peak
High above Hong Kong Island on the 'back of the Dragon', Victoria Peak is the City of Life's premier visitor attraction, providing magnificent harbour and city views. Arriving late afternoon enables you to experience the dazzling panorama of Hong Kong Island, the harbour, Kowloon and the hills beyond. Later, you can thrill to the neon-dotted skyline by night. What's more, The Peak offers visitors a multitude of fantastic entertainment, dining and shopping options.

Peak Tram
The best way to get to the top is via the
Peak Tram, a funicular railway that carves a steep 396-metre swathe up the lush mountainside. The tram has been in operation since 1888, and once competed with sedan chairs as the most popular way up. Try to get seats at the front of the tram on the right-hand side for the journey skyward. The only way to describe the views from this vantage point is "simply breathtaking".

Peak Tower & Peak Galleria
Thrilling indoor entertainment is housed in the
Peak Tower and Peak Galleria. Attractions include a hi-tech virtual-reality ride, the Peak Explorer, as well as a showcase of weird and wonderful artefacts at the Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Odditorium. Then, rub shoulders with the famous at world-renowned Madame Tussaud's wax portraits museum. With around 100 astoundingly life-like wax figures means getting up close and personal with Jackie Chan and Arnold Schwarzenegger has never been easier. And let's not forget dining. There are several mouth-watering options on the Peak, including Cafe Deco Bar & Grill and Movenpick Marche Restaurant. All impress hungry visitors with their international menus and outstanding views.

Peak Walks
The Peak is the perfect location to embark on several trails. For a spectacular circular walk that takes about one hour, turn right out of the
Peak Tower and head for Lugard Road. To climb to even greater heights, stroll up Mount Austin Road to Victoria Peak Garden, then venture down to Aberdeen or return to Central via Old Peak Road.

Repulse Bay

Primarily a well-to-do residential area, sun-drenched Repulse Bay has a relaxed resort-like atmosphere. The wide, wave-lapped beach is popular with locals and visitors alike and great for sandy strolls - early morning with the waking of another day, when the sun is up and the sunbathers are out in force, or at sunset when all is at peace. As well as sun, sea and sand, there are plenty of diversions nearby. The ornate Life Guard Club is built in a traditional Chinese style, its ceiling decorated with magnificent swirling dragons. The picturesque gardens that lead down to the beach are dominated by towering twin statues of Kwun Yum and Tin Hau, both protectors of fishermen. The colonial-style, The Repulse Bay, houses designer shops and award-winning restaurants and resembles the luxury hotel that originally occupied the site. This is the ideal place for a romantic dinner under the stars. For something more down-to-earth, several open-air restaurants nearby specialise in the joys of wholesome barbecued food, including the freshest prawns, squid, fish and other seafood. All are cheery hives of activity every night of every week.

How to get there :
Take Bus no. 6, 6A, 6X, 260 from Central (Exchange Square) Bus Terminus and alight at Repulse Bay.

Hong Kong Convention Ambassador

The Hong Kong Convention Ambassador (HKCA) programme was established in 1994. About 400 Hong Kong based prominent professional and business leaders have been invited as HKCA so far.

  • When overseas, the HKCA are committed to promoting Hong Kong as an ideal location for conventions and exhibitions to their business counterparts.

  • They are actively seeking opportunities to bid for and organise international conventions and exhibitions which could be held in Hong Kong.

  • They are always talking positively about Hong Kong and encouraging their overseas associates to visit Hong Kong.

Once a person becomes a HKCA, he is presented with a specially framed certificate and a lapel pin. The HKCA Briefcase is a specially designed, pocket-size leaflet which contains important tips for them when they promote Hong Kong. The Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) is most grateful for the contribution of the HKCAs and conducts special activities, briefings and mailings to ensure the Ambassadors receive first-hand information about the latest developments and opportunities in Hong Kong.
