I was jumping up and down (well, all in my head! LOL :lol:) when I visited Amazing Race places during my trips in Macau, HK, Cambodia, Malaysia, and Singapore.

I'm just listing now, hopefully I get to upload pics here as well:

HONG KONG
Avenue of the Stars
Tien Tan Buddha
Wong Tai Sin Temple
rode the Ding Dings <3

MACAU
Senado Square
Templo de Ama
and Macau Tower
(I really need to revisit Macau)

CAMBODIA
Sad that I wasn't able to go to Chong Kneas side of the Tonle Sap...
Angkor Wat!!! (and the infamous Prasit Kothrong RB room!!!!)
The Bayon Temple
The Baphuon (TAR Oz 3)
Night Street Tarantulas (but never dared eat them)

MALAYSIA
Petronas Towers
Chow Kit Bomba (I was literally scouring the entire street as to where Charla/Mirna ate their cookies!!!)
Batu Caves (oh what fun remembering seeing Charla/Mirna descend those stairs in TAR All Stars spoilers!!)
Merdeka Square (TAR Asia 1)

SINGAPORE
The Merlion
The Fullerton Pavillon (I was actually expecting more from this... but yeah)
of course Ice Cream Sandwich in Orchard Road (which is surprisingly hard to find late at night)
Istana Park (slapped an imaginary U-Turn board ala Carol and Brandy)

I'd love to see the pictures, Cocoa! It always marvels me to see how places withstood TAR popularity or changed over the years.

Did you trek inside the Batu Caves?

So, on August 18th to 20th I went to Bandung and visited two locations on TAR23 Bandung leg.

I arrived on Bandung Train Station where teams received the Detour clue on Leg 9:



Then, I visited Curug Cimahi, the Pit Stop on Leg 10. What I didn't realized when I watched the airing was that teams actually had to go down 587 STEPS to reach the Pit Stop on the waterfall and there is no shortcut whatsoever... So, when they're going up after that, they had to climb the 587 STEPS again. :iok







After that, I went to Tangkuban Parahu Volcano (Leg 10), passed by Kawah Domas Crater entrance (the egg boiling Roadblock)



and visited the Kawah Ratu Crater (where teams received the Detour clue on Leg 10)

Glad you had fun in Bandung, Kam!
And 1174+ steps?! :o Curug Cimahi would be a great place to do a workout regimen. It's easy to say climbing down the stairs would be no sweat while watching from home, but I definitely eat my words when I see or hear about the actual magnitude of a place.

It has been 10 years since my only trip to Paris.

I did visit the Sacré-Cœur Basilica and I must have passed Square Louise-Michel. The Arc de Triomphe was sadly closed for renovations at the time. And I definitely visited the Eiffel Tower.

After two weeks of intense contemplating, a talk with a travel agent, and a few social lunch breaks sacrificed in finding the perfect getaway, I am enthused to announce that I will be taking my first ever international vacation in early August! I am excited to announce that I will be visiting as many Race locations in the nearby proximity and trying to immerse myself within the environment while touring the area! My 10-day "expedition" in... :nut:
Show content
First and final clue!

...will be one to remember for sure!
:talk I cannot wait to show you about my journey once I return home (and get rid of the complementary jet lag).

Two places from the last Buenos Aires legs from TAR27 and TARCAN3:

The end point of the Detour option "Fletero":



And the Totem on Plaza Canada, the first route marker of the leg.
