It's the Padang Kota Lama! Translates into "Field of the Old Fort," just outside Fort Cornwallis.

also, Singapore hosted many Chingay during the festives of Chinese New Year.

In chinese it reads Zhuang Yi

One of the task by Jet and Cord can be found here:

From the preview: CHINGAY!!


Lots of CHINGAY info and videos here:

http://www.squidoo.com/chingay

In Chinese dialect Hokkien "Chin Yi" or "Chin Gay" which means real art or true art.

This real art or true art is skillfully displayed by using the flag pole (Bamboo pole) and the flag pole ranges from 25 ft to 32 ft, the length of the flag is around 25ft, made from silk and the total weight of these materials is around 60 pounds.

The "Chingay" is a spectacular procession. The Bamboo pole carried perpendicularly by a steward bearer or performers with half-a-dozen others taking turn. The steward bearer/performers will normally balance huge poles with enormous triangular flags, on their forehands,chin,lower jaws and shoulders.

Yes Peach, the Padang (field) is in between the Town Hall and Fort Cornwallis, dead in the centre of the historic town.

I believe we, for a split second, saw either Penang or Singapore in the introduction to the Seychelles today - a Hindu temple! Puddin, would you be able to find the cap? It's when the teams arrive in Mahe, if I remember correctly.

Nice! I was wondering if this was the speedbump. :-[

With the others still lined up so neatly, I'm thinking Jet & Cord are the first ones to this detour.  Of course, they could be the only ones!

What do we think the clue is in his hand?



Since it has Black text running down vertically it does not match any of these types of yellow clues.
 


Is it the Speed bump? I did not see what those clues look like. Anyone?

I think it's the inside envelope of a Detour

That definitely looks like a Detour clue in his hand, in my opinion.

Any possibility of the first (and perhaps and probably only) Fast Forward on the race appearing on this leg? :duno:

OK, so the flight information for Seychelles to Kuala Lumpur (primary gateway to Penang due to better connections there than through Singapore) is more complicated than I originally estimated due to a Sunday being the expected day of flying. Sunday schedules are often different than weekday schedules. It was Sunday Dec.13  because teams arrived nonstop from Paris on Dec. 11 at 0715 and were able to finish their tasks and checkin before noon. The teams that had to return for the coconuts were subject to an extra 4 miles in the ox cart, which would have taken them about 65 minutes more than the leading teams assuming the ox averaged 3.7 miles/hour as indicated by Answers.com. The reason that can be important is that teams can be expected to have an extended pit stop in the Seychelles (who could ask for anything fore replenishing?). They would be released from it on or before midnight between Dec. 12 and 13 according to my timeline for AR16

There are 2 primary primary routes off the Seychelles, to Doha and to Dubai. Let's examine the best flight for each one Sundays:

Best if they can get it - SEZ DXB EK708 0150 0830 connecting with DXB KUL EK942 (Phil's flight one day earlier) 1030 2135

SEZ DOH QR703 0730 1115 connecting with DOH DXB EK847 1415 1415  in Doha, connecting with DXB KUL MH157 1835 0600+1

If reachable, SEZ DXB EK708 0150 0830 connects with EK404 DXB SIN 0955 2055 connecting with SIN PEN 3K673  0700+1 0825+1, which is not competitive by 2.6 hours

       

Getting to Seychelles International Airport near Mahe on Victoria island, the airport interestingly at the closest point to Praslin, could be problematical. Do helicopters there fly at night? I don't know. A fast boat could make it in 2 to 3 hours and might get Steve/Allie or Dan/Jordan there in time without being able to do the same for the other 4 teams which had to go back. If the only option is waiting for daylight so helicopters can operate, then teams might get to take the helicopters starting slightly before 0600, the approximate sunrise for Mahe days during the shortest ( and longest too due to being near the equator).  If that was the case, then the 730 am flight to Doha represents the optimal one for them.

Air Seychelles appears to have flights from PRI to SEZ throughout the day from 06:15 until 20:50.

Is is possible they flew out of Praslin?
