Netflix’s The Mole Season 2 Was Filmed In Malaysia: Johor’s Forest City, Petronas Twin Towers And More

The first batch of episodes dropped on Jun 28 and saw contestants participating in a heist at Forest City where they had to abseil down a 38-storey building and in a game where they had to transport treasure chests off of Tioman Island.

According to host Ari Shapiro, Forest City’s condominiums were “a perfect spot for a glamorous holiday home, for those who can afford it. And most of the year, they lie empty.”

Forest City, a mega-housing project built by Country Garden, China’s largest property developer, was launched in 2016. The US$100 billion (S$135 bil) complex is located on four artificial islands and is meant to house apartments, a waterpark and hotels. 

But the project was delayed when the developer ran into financial problems, turning into a ghost town.
