Teams must fly to Hanoi, Vietnam. Upon arrival teams must make their way to the Lý Thái Tổ Garden, where they would find a group of locals doing their morning exercises using fans.

On the roof, they must use the ladder to retrieve a birdcage. Once they have the birdcage, they must return the ladder and bring the birdcage back to the shop at 42A Hàng Vải Street to receive their next clue. Only three ladders are available at a time.
