Teams must travel by taxi or metro to the Chen Clan Academy and wait for a martial arts demonstration to end for the master to stamp their next clue on their forehead.

Teams must travel by taxi to Edaytown to find their next clue.

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to assemble a child's motorized car from a provided kit. Once the car was fully assembled and operational to the "toy soldier" judge's approval, he would give out the next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Caroline & Jennifer used their Express Pass to bypass the Roadblock. Caroline had chosen to perform the task prior to handing over the Express Pass.

Teams must travel by taxi to the Children's Activity Center with the car assembled at the Roadblock and give the toy car to the children to receive their next clue.

Choice A: Featherball
Teams would have to play jianzi with two local players. Once they've successfully volleyed the shuttlecock a combined 10 times, they'll receive their next clue. If at any time the shuttlecock falls to the ground, teams have to start over.

All of the teams chose this task.

Choice B: China Cup
Teams would receive a traditional massage involving cupping therapy. Once the massage is completed, teams will receive their next clue.

None of the teams chose this task.

Teams must travel by taxi to Shamian Island Promenade to check in.

For coming in first, Brendon & Rachel each won $2,500.
