Just saw post #1013:
The poser said that he saw a clue box at Central Pier No.9(Hong Kong) last night(1st November), and he wasn't sure is it US version or not.(but i guess it is!) In addition, he saw 5 teams got a clue from the box:  2 teams got it on 7:30pm and 3teams got it on 8:45pm.

Wow!!It's Hong Kong AGAIN! I'm FELT SO EXCITEDDDDD :yess:
You mean Nov 11th right kaad?

Writes the over-formal language, last night November 11, in the intermediate belt ninth wharf saw has clue box, side does not know national edition already The Amazing Race, I saw that has 5 teams people to carry clue, distinguishes 2 team 7:30pm, 3 team 8:45pm

I am The Amazing Race already Fans, can 夠 see other countries with own eyes at the competition, feels really excitedly, also notů 

Oh ... I'm so sorry for the silly mistake :groan:
It's 11th November :'(

omg, if it's november 11th it COULD  be our race!
Peach said she heard the teams would be in Vietnam around November 7, 8, or 9...

Yes, indeed it could. Michael is correct! Why not AR14 in Hong Kong? The timing is right. AR14 has to finish around Nov. 20 to 22, so having Hong Kong as the halfway point makes sense to me. I expect that teams could enjoy time in Malaysia or Indonesia, but particularly Australia and New Zealand, each of which could have multiple legs.

My guess is that it goes something like this(with 12 legs because there ar reportedly 12 teams):

Locarno
Salzburg
Romania
Somewhere in Asia
Somewhere Else in Asia
Hong Kong
Bali
Alice Springs, Australia
Canberra, Australia
Christchurch, New Zeland
Wellington New Zealand
U.S. Finish

Neobie, I think you have done a valiant attempt but have narrowed your focus more than is necessary. I decided to widen the time range of how apart each of two flights needs to be, mostly to qualify flights that are slightly less than on hour apart. Another problem with your analysis is the assumption that it takes no time at the airport for teams to make it to tranportation. Even though the teams have carrry-ons, the cameras and sound equipment have to be checked, so retrieving them takes time and possibly customs would add to that. I think about 45 minutes would be needed at HKG for AR14 units of 2 members, one cameraperson and one soundperson to disembark.

Here is what I found using today's (admittedly not yesterday's like you used) schedule of actual arrivals into Hong Kong. If you do it that way and make the resasonable assumption that these cities are large enough to have daily service to Hong Kong(not a few times a week), here are the cities from which flights could have originated and landed in the 5pm to 7pm time frame:

Taipei 522pm, 605pm
Bangkok 503pm, 628pm
Shanghai 518pm, 605pm

The incoming flight should logically be from anywhere in eastern or central Asia and I expect the outgoing flight maybe 2 days later to be going south.

Apparently #9 is a generic public pier with no outlying connections. A Lamma restaurant uses the pier for a free shuttle, but that's all I could find. Although they'll probably use taxis, it's only an 8 minute walk from the MTR (8:24, to be exact  :lol:: go here and search for "Pier 9").

based on eyewitness, hongdomoto said the phrase on the clue didn't seems like "The Amazing Race", so it MAYBE not the US version... :ascared

Thanks Kaad!

It looks exactly like a TAR clue box, but we'll have to wait and see I guess.

I know it probably is TAR Israel but I really hope it's our TAR, those buildings in the background look so cool :hearts:

ya..i hope so. :jam: 

Hong Kong is the City of Nights, the view is really spectacular! but everytime TAR went to HK, they didn't shown a lot, because most of the teams finished their task before sunset..

could be TAR US. But the darker skin could be more TAR Isreal. I am hoping for TAR 14!!!  :duno:

Where did  that "Whole" picture come from please? Is there a link?? Because we didn't have the whole thing before--just feet, :lol: ...and if Phil is really up that pole and not photochopped, then we will need to think this is TAR 14 and not TAR Israel.

So thanks!! Love Phil pole sitting!

Well in case you didn't already know it, there is almost definitely one of the amazing races present in HK at the moment....we just have to figure out which one.....

Not sure if this blog gives any new info apart from a possible task on Victoria Peak

I have no idea...maybe the same reason all the indians were wearing orange turbans in TARA3 :duno:

or it may be something else and nothing TAR related at all

I hope it isn't a corporate race--they do have them in HK.

I was so sad when the TARA 3 HK leg didn't go to the Peak, so I would love that!

Yeah my blog and pic  is not clear over whether it is corporate or real, but the pic of the clue box from the HK poster seems pretty kosher, and the dates fit. It could be that my blogger overheard something about the race being in town (or on the peak earlier in the day), and then saw some thing happening and took a photo assuming they were connected.

I only really posted it because it fitted with the other sightings.
