EPISODE SUMMARY , with huge thanks to our local insider! :hearts:

(all photos are thumbnails...click-click and they enlarge) Items in red may be clicked for further info.

Teams will be released from Singapore's Marina Barrage, and fly to Shanghai.
Thanks to the guys in the Timeline thread, we believe they will all have used MU544, dep 12:55 AM (delayed 16 minutes) - Fri Dec 18, 2009, arrived slightly late at ~ 0610 at Terminal 1, (PVG) Pu Dong Airport.

 


Teams taxi to Pu An Lu Bus Stop / then Travel by Bus to Zhu Jia Jiao
Pu'an Rd / Jinlin Rd (Huzhu Express) Zhu Jia Jiao
The Huzhu Express is a bus that costs Y12 and takes slightly less than an hour between Pu'an Rd and Zhu Jia Jiao. It leaves every half an hour.
Thanks to Neobie for the help with this! ^^
From Wikitravel link above:
By Bus

--- Quote ---The most affordable way to get to Zhujiajiao is to take a bus from the bus station at the Puanlu(Chinese: 普安路)bus station near People's Square in Shanghai. Make sure you take the bus line called Hzhū Gāos Kuixin (Chinese: 沪朱高速快线) - they usually use pink busses. This should take around 1 hour and the fare is about 12 yuan. There are other bus lines, but they can sometimes take up to 2 hours. Don't worry about where to get off, Zhujiajiao is the end terminal.

From there, they travel by foot to
ROADBLOCK: Noodles


Seen doing this RB in the caps is Jordan.


From there, they return to the bus station where they take marked taxis back into Shanghai to
ROUTE MARKER: in Lu Zia Zui Park in Pudong

SPEC: This could possibly become a RB in Ep 11 instead

Lujiazui Central Green is located in Pudong district in Shanghai. The Greens are situated at the entrance of a Tunnel where you could come across a group of huge steel structures named Spring which resembles eight flowers in full bloom. This is the largest space which has been opened up by the Shanghai Government. Some of the evergreen grass has been imported.

Lujiazui Central Green covers an area of approximately 100,000 sq metres out of which 65,000 sq meters are covered of an evergreen turf. The shape pathway resembles the city flower of Shanghai, Magnolia. The center of the Lujiazui Central Green features a man made lake which covers an area of 8600 square meters. The lake resembles a map of the Pudong new area. There is a fountain in the centre of the lake that can spray water columns as high as 80 meters. There is a white scenic canopy on the banks of the lake which resembles both a conch and a shell.

The green land is surrounded by clusters of high buildings which are like a new International Architecture Expo. Towards the south of the Lujiazui Central Green is the Lujiazui development Exhibition Room which showcases special architectures and combines Chinese and Western culture. It also reveals the past present and future of Lujiazui. The park is open from 6AM till 10PM.

This location may include something to do with Cadillac Escalades?? cars?? product placement?? Not clear... possibly originally scheduled for Da Ning Park instead.

< Confirmed as Hong Yi Plaza by Boingo,  

At some point along here, there is a "high Fashion" task  (believed to originally be a RB in leg 2):

Teams were originally supposed to travel by taxi to the "High Fashion" Roadblock, which I suspect has been transformed into the "Fashion" Route Marker scheduled for episode 10.
In any case, it was originally located in Tian Zi Fang

We believe teams then travel by subway Shanghai Metro to the second RB
ROADBLOCK 2: at Shanghai Hongkou Stadium  MAP
Thanks to jerseydude for the links!

The Roadblock consists of solving a large dragon puzzle using large cards.



Doing this Roadblock are Cord and Brent by caps, and Michael by insider info. Michael reportedly is somewhat colorblind and had difficulty with the puzzle.


Teams travel from the Stadium by METRO to the
PITSTOP at the Shanghai Science and Technology Museum. Thanks to slowhatch for the links!


Teams arrive in the following order: Cowboys. Models, Brothers, Cops.

This is a NEL leg with a 12 hour Pitstop.


jerseydude:
I think this episode will be one week late. CBS has the 45th ANNUAL ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS during TAR time. So air date should be April 24, 2010.
