I dont know if this has been posted so far but this press releaseL

http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20100916005215/en ,

states that Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Vietnam will be visited on the race.

I think it's not TARA really, it's a Hilton Hotel's Amazing Race thingy.

It is realted to the race, it says it premieres on Sept.23

Hmmm...I don't think that is exactly what it says?

The way I am reading it...the VIEWERS game will feature those countries. ABut it certainly does overlap in at least several of our known locations, and we don't have every location.

Wow, racers staying in Hilton's is a major switch from last season's hardest race ever!! :ascared

SINGAPORE & MCLEAN, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hilton Hotels & Resorts, the flagship brand of Hilton Worldwide, is set for a whirlwind tour around Asia this October as it joins forces with the Asian edition of the Emmy award-winning reality competition series – The Amazing Race Asia, which is produced by and aired on AXN, the leading English general entertainment channel in Asia. In line with its ‘Stay Hilton, Go Everywhere’ global marketing campaign, Hilton is the first international hotel brand to partner with the programme which is in its fourth season.

Starting September 23, more than 13 Hilton hotels and resorts in the Asia Pacific region will be featured throughout The Amazing Race Asia (TARA) Season Four in various aspects. Viewers catching the action from home will also be able to join in the race with a first-of-its-kind viewers contest through the location-based social networking website, Foursquare, co-sponsored by Hilton Hotels & Resorts.

“The unique format of participants racing across the world in The Amazing Race Asia is the perfect fit for our ‘Stay Hilton, Go Everywhere’ campaign. It helps showcase our wide range of hotels and resorts in the region and also sends a strong message that Hilton makes the world accessible through its global offerings,” said Dave Horton, global head, Hilton Hotels & Resorts brand.

In this year’s race across Asia, contestants will be faced with Hilton-specific challenges where they find themselves subjected to the same demanding hospitality standards the brand maintains as a stylish, forward-thinking global industry leader. Racers who check-in first on certain legs will also walk away with well-deserved dream Hilton holiday packages. Throughout the filming period, racers and production teams were all treated with warm hospitality at Hilton properties to catch up on their rest in between gruelling challenges.

Ten episodes of the show will feature a unique ‘Check-in and Win’ contest for viewers. A ‘pit stop’ in a designated Hilton property will be revealed at the end of each programme and the first five viewers to check-in using Foursquare between 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. during the following seven days will win a host of Hilton prizes including room nights and dining vouchers. These viewers’ pit-stops are located at Hilton properties across the region including Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Vietnam.

“For decades Hilton has been connected with popular entertainment around the world. Our innovative approach to engaging customers through entertainment partnerships is demonstrated in our co-sponsorship of the ‘Check-in and Win’ Foursquare contest, which is a first for Hilton and The Amazing Race Asia. It conveys the stylish, contemporary and upbeat energy of our service and hospitality, and we’re confident that the response from viewers will be very encouraging,” said Andrew Flack, vice president, global brand marketing, Hilton Hotels & Resorts brand.

We shall see but to me it seems like the hotels they used during the race are the ones the viewers have a chance to choose from.

"A ‘pit stop’ in a designated Hilton property will be revealed at the end of each programme" it wouldnt make sense for a leg to be held in Vietnam and to have the viewers pit stop in Thailand, so I do beleive that could be the countries list.

UNDER CONSTRUCTION

can anyone get a picture shots from the intro of TARA 4?  All I could see and remember on both places, animals and people (besides 10 teams) are:

1. A jumbo jet airplane
2. 2 or 3 monkeys
3. Sky Tower in Auckland, NZ
4. A church
5. A beach house
6. An underwater aquarium with soccer net
7. Sydney Opera House
8. Mt. Fuji in Japan [?]
9. A Maori guy from New Zealand
10. A Chinese Temple

A.
B. = recycled
C. = Sky Tower in Auckland, NZ

D.

Great job Banzai!! I am nabbing some caps now too if you want them...and look what was hidden in the Intro!! :jumpy: :jumpy:

they went through arrowtown.
i saw an indonesian couple come in at about 2pm. they were coming into queenstown and were off to sydney. I think they flew direct at 4.20pm. then about 20mins later these 2 arab looking gurls came in. i think these two teams were in last and 2nd to last. As the one of the air line people said they had been coming in all dae.
I knew it was the amazing race, because i watch the show. and i was in arrowtown earlier that day and a resturant owner told me that the amazing race was being filmed here, but i didnt c anyting, and then wen i got to the airport later on, i saw them.
No picture sorry
hope this helps


this could be.. Hussein and Natasha and Sunaina and Dimple.. and they were the last 2 team there..so i guess H/N is on 6th place and S/D is 7th place .. so either H/N or S/D will be eliminated on this leg... anyway, this is just my thought  :duno: :)

----adding info-----

More info on NZ from someone who knows...

Quote

1st team was a couple of American (i think) dudes, the chicks in 2nd, a well spoken Asian couple was 3rd, only caught a glimpse of 4th & 5th but last place was two Asian girls who seemed to be struggling and didn't seem to be great with English. I also know the team that came into town 5th had some troubles, drove the wrong way down the main street, got stuck panic'd etc and ended up trying to do a u-turn on the main street and had to get help from a local to get the campervan off the main street, so they were penalized for allowing someone else to drive their car as well as for breaking the law by driving down the main street so they would have been struggling to stay in it.


ok, i'm goin to interprete this one.. :)

1st team: richard and richard
2nd team: jess and lani (?)
3rd team: alan and wendy (?)
4th team: ?????
5th team: ?????
6th team (last place): claire and michelle (?)

it is so hard to interprete this one  :lol:
i assume that this one is the next leg from my another thought above...and now it's already 6 teams left
i think it will be a non-elimination round :)

The F/F team look like Claire & Michelle . The left girl look like have a brown hair as Michelle , doesn't she ?

I think the girl on the left is Claire instead. And yes, i think you're right. The bags the team is carrying matches Claire & Michelle's bags.

Ok. Based on our spoilers, only 7 teams remain during the New Zealand Leg, which means:

Leg 1 - Malaysia: NEL
Leg 2 - Malaysia: EL
Leg 3 - Sri Lanka: EL
Leg 4 - Philippines: EL
Leg 5 - New Zealand: ?
Leg 6 - Australia: ?

Three teams are eliminated before the New Zealand Leg.
Seven teams remain racing for the NZ Leg.

These six teams are SURE to be racing in Leg 5:
:yes: Richard and Richard - seen at the Philippine airport
:yes: Ethan and Khairie - seen at the Philippine airport, and in Australia
:yes: Ivan and Hilda - seen at the Philippine airport
:yes: Jess and Lani - seen at the Philippine airport, and at the NZ news articles
:yes: Hussein and Natasha - seen at the Philippine airport
:yes: Dimple and Sunaina - seen at the Philippine airport

If Claire and Michelle are the girls in the Australian picture with Ethan and Khairie, then Alan and Wendy might be eliminated on Leg 2, 3, or 4.

Furthermore, the airport counter lady (franz_manu) did not see Claire and Michelle there at the counter, but she knows they are still in the race (and she feels they even lasted long). This means our first three teams to be eliminated are:

:yes: Yani and Nadine
:yes: Sahil and Manas
:yes: Alan and Wendy

DISCLAIMER: This list is prone to errors, though.

Im pretty positive that the girls in the picture are Claire and Michelle. But one can never be too sure  :duno:

I am still puzzling a little over this Intro cap map...There is not much time to get to some of these places...and some are wrong. They flew through Christchurch, not Auckland...

We have no rvidence that they went to Istanbul, or LA, but Jakarta and Tokyo are very possible.


must be misdirection, right? Right? :lol:

From my perspective, and off the top of my head:
Sydney is a definite.
Auckland unlikely. I believe all teams flew in from Singapore via Christchurch. Only possibility is if the team that got ahead of the others on the next leg flew from Queenstown to Sydney via Auckland instead of Christchurch.
Jakarta is very likely, at least to pass thru the airport, not sure if there were any tasks or an actual leg here.
Bangkok is a possible alternative transit airport to Singapore when flying in and out of Sri Lanka, but no evidence or time to have a leg there, at least not before we lost sight of them at the end.
Istanbul, like Los Angeles, no evidence,  but a leg is *possible* in one or the other, (but unlikely time/distance wise in both) after we lost sight of them at the end.
Tokyo, some evidence from Allen's tweet about the cost of living in Japan that they *may* have visited Japan, but we don't know the actual city.
Los Angeles, like Istanbul, no evidence,  but a leg is *possible* in one or the other, (but unlikely time/distance wise in both) after we lost sight of them at the end.

I am still puzzling a little over this Intro cap map...There is not much time to get to some of these places...and some are wrong. They flew through Christchurch, not Auckland...

I remember one season of TARA that flashed that map too, and what disturbed me was they put names of random places to wrong locations (like, say for example, putting the caption LA near Madagascar)

Or am I just dreaming? :lol3:
