A Short Hiatus but One of the Pioneering Knowledge Quiz on Asia is Back. Be a Part of Asian Geographic Hot Soup Challenge 2022 Now!

How well do you know Asia’s rich history, politics, environment and geography? Organised by ASIAN Geographic, the ASIAN Geographic Hot Soup Challenge is an annual event in Singapore that tests participants’ knowledge on the region in a competitive environment with exciting prizes to be won!

Over the years, the previous ASIAN Geographic Hot Soup Challenges has received strong support from secondary schools across Singapore, with over 3,200 students from over 1,000 schools participating in previous years. The Hot Soup Challenge has also been graced by VIPs such as late president MR S R NATHAN, Member of Parliament MR BAEY YAM KENG, MR VIKRAM NAIR, and Parliamentary speaker MR MICHAEL PALMER.

This year, the Asian Geographic Hot Soup Challenge is opening its competition categories not just to educational institutes but Singaporeans of all ages.

We welcome you to pit your wits against others and see if you can clinch the title of champion of knowledge on Asia!

Participants will also get to meet and greet our distinguished Guest of Honour, and listen to a series of educational talks from several inspirational guest speakers.

Exclusively for the 2022 edition, featuring the Department of Tourism of the Philippines and the Tourism Promotion Board Philippines as the Official Educational & Family Destination Partner, the winning team will be invited and hosted* to “wake up” and experience the Philippines – as they say, “It’s More Fun in the Philippines”!

*Terms and conditions apply.

This year’s Hot Soup Challenge will take place on 16 September 2022, 11a.m. at Sands Expo & Convention Centre (10 Bayfront Ave, Singapore 018956).

On the day of the Challenge, teams will be given a list of 10 questions to be answered in 10 minutes, which serves as their qualifying round. The questions will be taken from the past editions of Asian Geographic magazines.

Thereafter, the qualified teams will progress to the nail-biting finals, where they will be pitted against one another – hands on buzzers – to battle it out for the title. The winning team of four will claim their school the trophy and earn the title as the 2022 Asian Geographic Hot Soup School Challenge Champions. They will also win themselves an amazing 4D3N educational tour to either Bohol or Coron in the Philippines, fully sponsored by the Tourism Promotion Board Philippines!

Asian Geographic Hot Soup School Challenge 2017

The 2017 ASIAN Geographic Hot Soup Challenge concluded its sixth successful quiz this year, held at the Management Development Institute of Singapore (MDIS). The competition brought together 20 teams of four between the ages of 13 and 17 from various schools around Singapore, with the majority of participants returning to the competition with high hopes of making it into the finals.

Thailand: From the eyes of a young explorer

Six months ago, we were neck deep in the ASIAN Geographic Hot Soup Challenge 2017, pitting our knowledge of Asia against other secondary school contestants for a shot at being crowned champion of general knowledge on the region. Late October saw us triumphantly bundled up for a flight to Bangkok – almost vibrating with excitement – as part of the victor’s winnings: a specially organised educational adventure into the Land of a Thousand Smiles.

A Step Back in Time

Sukhothai translates to “dawn of happiness” our guide, Tong, tells us with an appropriately wide grin as we pull out of the airport on a steaming, cloudless day in February. It’s the end of the dry season, and a milky Thai iced tea (Cha Yen ชาเย็น) – a shock of saccharine, foamy orange – goes down a treat. The lazy yawns I’ve been stifling since the early morning wake-up are swiftly substituted with a caffeine and condensed milk-induced buzz.
