What was the funniest moment of your journey at Daraz?

Our Daraz Myanmar team went on a day out to Hpa Ann and enjoyed hiking at Mount Zwekabin in 2019. On the way to Hpa Ann, we listened to music and danced in the buses all night. At 8.30am we began our ascent and a majority of us made it to the top. On our way back from Hiking, the team participated in a trash-packing challenge and cleaned up the area. It’s amazing what we have achieved together as a team on our adventure- so much fun, laughter and environmental impact. The memory of that day is as fresh in my mind as if it has happened today.
