The dragon boat comes from China’s ‘dragon’ culture, with each dragon boat having traditionally having a carved dragon’s head at the front. The paddles represent claws, so watch out! There are generally up to 20 paddlers per dragon boat plus a drummer and a helm (someone to steer the boat).
The races are a fun spectacle, with at least two boats competing against each other over distances of 100 or 200 metre courses. Of course strength and technique are both important, but teamwork is crucial and this is the reason it is such a great teambuilding event.
In ancient China the dragon boat was used for religious purposes as a way of appeasing the rain gods. Some of our participants hope for the same, no rain during the race. Of course the weather in Thailand is so warm that a shower or two is no drama anyway.
Dragon Boating is new to Pattaya but not to Sail in Asia. We have over twenty years experience teaching corporate clients how to paddle and then to race these fun boats. This is the perfect M.I.C.E activity for large groups visiting Krabi, Pattaya, or Phuket Thailand.
Your team member need no previous experience of paddling to participate in this fun event. The dragon boat team building can include many options for your bespoke event.
We run the Dragon Boat Event on the river at Krabi Boat Lagoon for up to 200 people and host the catering in the marina by the BBQ and Swimming pool area. The delightful setting is in the mangroves and is the perfect venue for watching the racing and for outside catering on the lawn close by the river. The Barbeque is outstanding as is the Buffet - provided Check out the movie and see if this activity would suit your company teambuilding!
