Royal Geographical Society HK Heritage Treasure Hunt

7 May 2016 . iDiscover in partnership with Team Building Asia put together the HK Royal Geographical Society’s first ever Hong Kong Heritage Treasure Hunt! Using the iDiscover App&Map teams had three hours to navigate their way around the streets of Sheung Wan and Central from PMQ to Maritime Museum, completing trivia questions, checkpoint activities, and photo challenges on the way. A fun way to discover and appreciate heritage and history of the urban jungle they call home!

Over 150 participants took part, competing in speed, stamina and intelligence with the winning team ‘desperate housewives’ clocking an unprecedented 2,000 points. The route highlighted little known facts about places from the past with checkpoints at Fringe Club, 10 Chancery Lane, PMQ, The Helena May, Tai Kwun, and the traditional Kwong Wah Printing Company in Sai Street.Royal Geographical Society Royal Geographical Society

The finish was at Cafe 8 on the rooftop of the Hong Kong Maritime Museum. Against the backdrop of HK’s dazzling skyline and a gorgeous sunset, the winning teams were awarded prizes by Royal Geographical Society director Rupert McCowan. Sweaty but happy faces at the end of what was an intelligent and fun-filled group activity to discover Hong Kong’s insider secrets. We’ve started planning for the 2017 edition!!
