The order of departure from Shri Ramchandra Farm House are as follows:
Teams must fly to Hong Kong, China. Upon arrival, teams will have to search the waiting Rolls-Royce limousine outside the airport, which will then escort them to The Peninsula Hong Kong, where they will find their next clue.
Choice A: Sam's
Teams would have to travel by taxi to Sam's Tailor to pick up measurements for a suit jacket, then head to Sam's Workshop, where they have to properly cut out six template pieces of a matching design. They then have to deliver a finished suit back to Sam's Tailor to receive their next clue.
Choice B: Cells
Teams would have to travel by taxi to a marked store on the crowded Apliu Street and search through boxes of used cell phones to find one that turns on. Upon dialing a number displayed on the phone, a message will instruct them to travel to an address on Kweilin Street where they will find their next clue.
Only Justin & Diana chose this task.
Teams must travel by taxi to Hong Kong–Macau Ferry Terminal and take a ferry to Macau. Once in Macau, teams will then travel by taxi to the City of Dreams Dancing Water Theatre, where they will receive their next clue from an actor dressed as Iago.
The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to take part in a performance of The House of Dancing Water, the world's largest water-based stage production. After diving over 30 feet from the central mast-shaped platform into the surrounding pool, they have to search under the water for a golden fish, then swim across the pool to deliver it to a fisherman on a raft in exchange for their next clue. If they can't complete the task before the music stops, they have to wait twenty minutes for the next performance and start over.
The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:
First Place • Eliminated • Last placer on a Non-Elimination Leg • Season winner • Season 2nd place • Season 3rd place • ► Used the Fast Forward • ϵ Used the Express Pass• ⊂ User of the first Double U-Turn slot • ⊃ Recipient of the first Double U-Turn slot • ⋐ User of the second Double U-Turn slot • ⋑ Recipient of the second Double U-Turn slot
- This episode was believed to be the show's 2016 submitted Emmy episode for "Outstanding Reality-Competition Program", but it was switched with Season 28's "We're Only Doing Freaky Stuff Today".
- The episode title was said by Krista.
- This was the first time since since "Hei Ho Heidi Ho" in Season 24 that the eleventh leg of the race ended with an elimination.
- The Cells Detour is same task that was used in Leg 4 of The Amazing Race Asia 4.
