;D Just throwing this out there...Huguang Guild Hall is known for it's Peking Opera, and has a small museum which may be where the cluebox/U-turn is seen.  Need to do some more searching.

YES YES THAT'S IT! :tup:


This building is ALSO called Wenchang Ge!

It's in the Huguang Guild Hall complex, the place where the Chos got lost and found the mysterious "Chinese Special Dish" back in Season 10.

Jaime/Cara are half a (huge Beijing) block away. So they must have finished the Detour at the Guild Hall, took out the Courtesy Of picture wanting to U-Turn someone, but wander around the streets not knowing that Wenchang Ge is right back where they started - in the Guild Hall.

(This means the Summer Palace lead is broken.)

If there's anyone that didn't believe TARTimes have changed throughout this decade, this is it!  JMO, but if I stopped after 2004-2005, and resumed this year (though I would've been apart of allstars), I would've called it: Preston/Jennifer, Mel/Mike, and Amanda/Kris.
Every reality star is someone's favorite

Winning isn't everything, but it isn't considered nothing either. Otherwise, there wouldn't be a tribal council, a pit-stop, a boardroom, dimming of the lights, and so on

It's probably some kind of park... the biggest park I know is near the Beijing Zoo.

Sorry the card is the clue to the North Gate fake pitstop :groan:

It must be near the main city you can see the buildings in the smog

 ;D  OK, someone mentioned the zoo.... let's run with that.... there just happens to be a rock garden at the Beijing Zoo. :lol:   Just thinking out loud.... food for thought.... wink wink..  ;)   :duno:

...fwiw, I think the rocks in the confessional are not real, but a concrete facade... as are the ones at the zoo... more food for thought....  don't see a buddha though... :res:

Prince Gong's Mansion maybe.......

"The rear section of the garden has a multi-leveled artificial hill built of Lake Tai stones. The bottom level has tunnels running through it and contains a stone with the character "fu" (meaning happiness in Chinese) written on it in the calligraphy of Qing Emperor Kangxi (1662-1722)."

Off to grab a couple of pics...

All these rock finding and hall finding made my head hurt...

Seriously, do every park in Beijing have a rock garden that looks alike each other? Temples do have the same color codes though... So it's really so hard to distinguish...  :(

Oh yeah, I agree with DrRox that it may be the Prince Gong's Mansion after all...

If you look closely at that white fence. It looks like one of those temporary types. The footing looks like it has a base. So its possible that fence was only up for the Olympics and just not taken down yet.

Also it said that bike shop is around the hotel or close to the hotel so probably the Pit Stop is close to there...

I've got a list of locations for the Giant bike shop Phil's walking by, but Street View's too screwed up to use as a tool...

The Chinese forums have provided as a list of places in Beijing with lakes...

Yuyuan Lake (Yuyuantan) which they are most inclined towards, Zizhu Garden (Zizhuyuan), the Zoo, Taoranting, Tuanjie Lake (Tuanjiehu), Chaoyang Park, Olympic Park, Houhai, Beihai, Shichahai, Zhongnanhai (nope, because it's China's super secret headquarters), Longtan Lake, Kunming Lake (Summer Palace) and Honglingjin Park

Map of Yuyuantan if it helps us pinpoint the location or the Buddha or the pavillion:

Welcome to the forum and thank you for sharing wuzhaozhe  :waves:

Maybe the confessionals were not taken at the pitstop area as they gave the teams time to wash off their makeup? And the buddha and pavillion or whatever it is were filmed somewhere else?
