Thanks to the EW article:

We know for sure this is HCMC

"Saw a finishing leg of "The Amazing Race" being filmed outside HCMC's Reunification Palace this morning."
With a follow up after a question:
AbeFrellman
"They actually pulled up in a cab, yelled "Go! Go!" like they were GIs, then ran (once cued) towards the host near a tank. 3:12 AM Jul 23rd


Blog: posted on 7/26

*we stumbled upon the Amazing Race being filmed in Vietnam (both on the Mekong and in HCMC)
*was so excited to take a picture with Phil (the host)
*Second, they were told not to tell anybody that TAR was being filmed here.

Dismantling e-waste? I hope it's not presented as some quaint local practice. The people who do that for a living (the low-tech way, I mean) lead shorter life-spans.

Yes you did. They have a huge landfill in Communist China. Not safe.

Place names. It's a bus! BX stands for Ben Xe (Bus Station), and BX Mien Tay is exactly the place the teams took the bus to Cai Be, no?

Isn't Phu Lam a city? I'll check.

ETA: It's part of Saigon or Ho Chi Minh City.

If only we can read the announcement itself. And what is with Justin having a balloon? I know it's a rnadom thing, but is the animal for a party? :P

Somewhere along the routes of 14 or 139, according to this map.

The Vietnamese reads C‚y Gű, Phķ L‚m, BX (Bến Xe) MiÍn T‚y if anyone wants to look.

Okay.
ETA: I tried tracing it, and it is one of 14 or 139. I can't find C‚y Gű though. Is it that circle near VÚng Xoay Phķ L‚m?

Wait. If Zev & Justin do the Detour by a bus & Lance & Keri do the RB by a bus as well, what does it all mean? :duno:

Also, look at the bus behind Zev: It says "15T-8ON" & "Thanh Pho". Is this any hint as to where they are in that shot?

My first thought was Zev is watching Justin do the RB with the bus behind him?
