  • At Phim Truong Long Island, one team member will have to scale a wall to retrieve four pieces of map and give it to the other team member who will have to assemble the map pieces in the room. Removing and using the length of decals provided, teams would have to measure the total distance of the 11 legs travelled. If they gave the calculated distance of 2,600 kilometres (1,600 mi), they would receive their final clue.
