Teams must travel by taxi to Wijaya Motor Shop to receive their next clue from a saleswoman.

Choice A: Ice-by-the-Pound
Teams would have to loaded ten 65-pound blocks of ice from an industrial machine at Tirta Maya Ice Factory onto a waiting truck, and then ride the truck to a local market. From there, they'll transport the ice by cart to an unloading zone at the Pabean Market to get their next clue.

Abbie & Ryan, Amy & Daniel, Caitlin & Brittany, Gary & Will, James & Abba, Jaymes & James, Josh & Brent, Rob & Kelley, Trey & Lexi chose this task.

Choice B: Fish-by-the-Barrel
Teams would have to carry two barrels full of fish to a vacant fishmonger's stall inside the Pabean Fish Market. They then have to set up the stall in the same manner as an example stall, including breaking a block of ice into chips to keep the fish cold. Once the stall's layout is approved, teams will receive their next clue.

Only Natalie & Nadiya chose this task.

Teams must search Pabean Market to find the Pit Stop and to check in.

For coming in first place, Natalie & Nadiya won the Express Pass.
