The teams are at the Rochor Canal Road district to learn why so many businesses are named after the moniker - Gek Sng Kio. They race along the Rochor Canal to discover the former thieves market, and then on to learn about the tomb and mausoleum of the late local Justice of Peace Haji Ambok Sooloh Haji Omar and his parents. It all culminates at the site of the former Singapore Ice Works, where teams learn about cold storage before the days of refrigeration.
