Hi everyone , I'm come from HongKong and I just feel so exciting that TAR were in HK now :wohoo:
A person from HKGolden Forum has taken some photos about  one of the team ,here is the link
http://forum4.hkgolden.com/view.aspx?message=2372656

This person said He saw two teams in Tsim Sha Tsui on 1800-1900HKT(12.06.2010)
Then He saw those two team run on the road and looking for a cab
It seems that the driver doesnt understanding what the team want to go
the cab has stopped few minutes on Hankow Road ,Tsim Sha Tsui then drive away

And somebody said he saw the teams were in Cheung Chau today.
But he didnt take any photos


*I'm sorry that my gramma is suck.I hope you guys can know what I'm talking about* :'(

The one with blue pack on the front door is the camera man.
The girls were carrying light green bags.

Just got tweet replies from a Tsim Sha Tsui sighting:

Quote
Another team is the Pink team with green backpack, 2 girls, quite sure!

But no photos because:

Because one team got on a cab immediately. I can't recognise them but there was at least one man in that team.

Note the tag...the blue pack is production, NOT a team.

The photos were at Haiphong Road, near the corner of Nathan Road. Hankow Road is only a short distance away. As for Cheung Chau, maybe the teams will do an "amazing" bun competition.

Has anyone contacted this last Twitter person? (tweeter?)  She seems to be an American on vacation in Hong Kong.... and she's a photographer!  She has a blog with lots of pics of her trip. I'm betting she had her camera with her on the ferry.

I'm keen to know which ferry they were running for

Peach already has her twitter account details, but  if you want to forward her the blog address also that would be great.

We did have a Bun Festival just recently. Special activities include climbing pile of buns. X)

So from the pic the route is (correct me if I'm wrong):
Airport > Central > Cheung Chau > Central > Tsim Sha Tsui
This summer ※ The Amazing Race: ZBC // RSF
