The Story of how Contiki came to celebrate Ren Ri 2018 at Mox

We were looking for a fun and different way to celebrate being young on Ren Ri.

We want to inspire people to be better versions of themselves and it was serendipity that we met the Mox team. It was love at first sight - we fell in love with our party venue (and of course the people behind Mox).

MOX is where Makers Remake the Extraordinary. MOX is an ecosystem. It's a 4-storey building with 40,000 sq ft of co-making space. A community in the heart of Joo Chiat, MOX is the first independent design resource workspace in Singapore.

We want to kick start the Year of the Dog with new adventures so every young person is invited to join us on this special day. Plus, come and meet Nic Cladakis, our Contiki Trip Manager from Europe if you want travel tips and advice about starting your own adventure.
