Finally, our top place for company outing and team building is Las Casas Filipinas De Acuzar in Bataan. Las Casas has been gaining popularity in the recent years because of how they were able to restore and restructure some of the most famous mansions and houses in the Philippines.

They have the usual obstacle courses but prepare to play traditional games like tumbang preso, luksong baka, and agawan panyo with your team. The old houses will not only bring you nostalgia but their activities will also bring your team back in your childhood years.

The top spot goes to Las Casas Filipinas De Acuzar


Finally, our top place for company outing and team building is Las Casas Filipinas De Acuzar in Bataan. Las Casas has been gaining popularity in the recent years because of how they were able to restore and restructure some of the most famous mansions and houses in the Philippines.

The old houses will not only bring you nostalgia but their activities will also bring your team back in your childhood years.
