Penultimate in Indonesia? I like that idea, but they should do that after 5 seasons/years, since Indonesia is getting way too overused. :funny:
I rather have Philippines in leg 1, but they should at least visit the Philippines. :hrt:


as an indonesian, i'm disappointed that The amazing race has overused Indonesia and all of them are early legs. i'm glad that Indonesia is used in leg 9&10. i really regret that they have to visit us for three consecutive seasons. I mean, i love amazing race coming to Indonesia and i would love to see them visit it every season, but non indonesian viewers will not be as happy  and satisfied as us. i think a break at least 3-4 seasons will be enough. but i want, in the next visit in indonesia Indonesia has to be a penultimate leg.

I would be happy if Philippines got a leg regardless of its placement. But Philippines really made a brilliant penultimate leg in TAR 5 and i want to see that again in TAR 24

i think cities in UK is indeed beautiful. which is why it would be best if put in early legs. Early legs should have a very beautiful scenery which delivers good first impression to the racers, and the viewers at home. also i think that UK doesn't frustrate teams as how penultimate legs should.
I agree with this. I love seeing Europe early in the race like TAR 3 with Scotland and TAR 4 with the Alps, Austria, France, Amsterdam.

If you can't tell, its all new locations. I'm sick of people wanting Africa or Europe or whatever. Asia is so diverse.

Nine legs in Asia is way overkill. Some of your places are also a bit unsafe, and/or the government dislike Americans.

If they're going to go to Paramaibo, it will probably only be for Leg 1 and 11, and the preceding/following leg will be in the Netherlands.

Hmm, some interesting routes, Loken. I like Liverpool and Manchester, but I prefer the reversed route. I think Europe is better placed late into the race

Also (coming from the area myself), I think Liverpool and Manchester are too similar to each other in that they have big city scenes and are quite difficult to get around :P A double leg solely in either Liverpool or Manchester (moreso Manchester than Liverpool) would work indeed ^^

Hong Kong Leg

- Hong Kong International Airport (bus) (train)
- Park Tower,Yuen Long Town Park,Yuen Long Town, New Territories (yield) <- the tower is 10 stories high and the cluebox could be located at the top!
- YOHO Town Podium, Yuen Long, New Territories (detour)(taxi)(train)  <- shopping tasks because its what hong kong is famous for!
   1st choice Shop - head to Sun Yuen Long Plaza and head to the Largest Parknshop there , in the parknshop, you need to buy some specific items and then exchange them to the clerk for your next clue , the task is close and not physical but is tedious and teams may get stuck or choose the wrong one
    2nd choice Fish - head to Lau Fau Shan by bus , once there teams have to find a marked fishing vessel, once there , teams have to move fish around from vessel to a container once done , teams will gain their next clue
- Tin Shui Wai Park Fountain, Tin Shui Wai, New Territories (cluebox) (train)(bus)(taxi)
- Jockey Club Town Square, Yuen Long, New Territories (switchback) (taxi)
  - make a wish , teams have to make there way to Lam Tsuen Wishing Tree, Tai Po, New Territories, and write a wish on an orange and then throw it into the tree, this was once shown on amazing race 2 as a detour choice
- Lion Rock, Kowloon (PITSTOP)
