Since the previous leg was a No-Rest Leg, teams immediately departed from the Pit Stop to continue racing.

Teams must take a taxi to Cafe Tư Điếc, where they must ask the waiter for their next clue.

Choice A: Stand
Teams must make their way to Chợ Tân An, where they must, following a finished example as reference, search the market for 13 different kinds of fish and eel needed to set up their own stall. Once they have properly set up their stall, the vendor would give teams their next clue.

Andrea & Malaina, Greg & John, Jocelyn & Victor, Morgan & Lena, Robbin & Chelsea, and Steve & Anna Leigh chose this task.

Choice B: Deliver
Teams must make their way to Nhà Hàng Riverside restaurant and find a nearby truck, where they must pick up four 66-pound mattresses and deliver them to West Hotel, taking the stairs to the designated room on the third floor. Once they have delivered all four mattresses, the hotel manager would give teams their next clue.

Joe & Ian, Joel & Garrett, Liam & Yeremi, Rob & Corey, and Todd & Ashlie chose this task.

Teams must make their way to Ong Pagoda, where they must purchase a wish card and make a wish that would be hung from the ceiling before receiving their next clue.

Teams must take a taxi Hùng King Temple, where they would find their next clue.

"Who wants to play matchmaker?"

The team member assigned to this Roadblock must search among thousands of tiles that adorn the temple grounds and find the one tile that matches the one depicted in the photo provided in their clue. Once they have found the correct tile, they and their partner may proceed to the nearby Pit Stop.
