My Amazing Race 30 Wishlist. (This all about countries that are underused and new countries! There are 5 new countries!)

Starting Line: Pearl Harbour, Honolulu, United States 🇺🇸
Hawaii NEVER gets starting lines (has it ever?)

Leg 1: Auckland, New Zealand 🇳🇿
The last visit to New Zealand was in Season 22. Underused and The Amazing Race has never stay in Auckland, for a whole leg.

Leg 2: Christchurch, New Zealand 🇳🇿
Christchurch has the most beautiful scenery, The Amazing Race cannot miss it.

Leg 3: Hobart, Australia 🇦🇺
Tasmania is a BEAUTIFUL city of Australia. The little island gem of Australia is amazing and is a perfect location for The Amazing Race to visit.

Leg 4: Melbourne, Australia 🇦🇺
Teams will need to drive to Devonport and then catch the Spirit of Tasmania to Melbourne. Cannot describe how amazing this city is. From sport to culture to food Melbourne has it all and needs to be visited, NOW!

Leg 5: Kathmandu, Nepal 🇳🇵
A NEW COUNTRY! Even Phil wants to visit his amazing country. Viewers will get hooked with the amazing mountains that are located around the city

Leg 6: Thimphu, Bhutan 🇧🇹
Prince William and Princess Kate visited and LOVED it. Can The Amazing Race replicate this visit?

Leg 7: Doha, Qatar 🇶🇦
Keep hoping for this country, season after season. I think it's just like the cities in the United Arab Emirates.

Leg 8: Cork, Ireland 🇨🇮
Time to leave Asia and to hop over to Europe. I can't believe Ireland hasn't been visited since Season 12! Time to revisit.

Leg 9: Brussels, Belgium 🇧🇪
Once again, only visited once. Hopefully, a task can be eating some Belgain chocolate!

Leg 10: Luanda, Angola 🇦🇴
Once again, a new country. Would like to see, since the civil war as ended and is safe.

Leg 11: Durban, South Africa 🇿🇦
Hasn't been visited since Season 7! Durban has also been never visited.

Leg 12: Havana, Cuba 🇨🇺 and Washington D.C, United States 🇺🇸
Amazing Race isn't going to visit Cuba, but I can keep dreaming...

Finish Line: White House, Washington D.C, United States 🇺🇸
With Trump at the Finish Line! (haha)

Hope you enjoyed it, The Amazing Race Asia 5 Wishlist next!

The Amazing Race Asia 5 Wishlist (this is staying just in ASIA!)
Starting Line: Yuhi Falls, Minamiashigara, Japan 🇯🇵
Japan hasn't has a Starting Line and has only been visited once.

Leg 1: Toyko, Japan 🇯🇵
Toyko is a massive city and just is crying for another visit. Teams will have to take a train form the Starting Line to here.

Leg 2: Shanghai, China 🇨🇳
Hong Kong and Macau have only been visited, not mainland China.

Leg 3: Beijing, China 🇨🇳
If you go to China, you must visit Beijing.

Leg 4: Ulaanbatar, Mongolia 🇲🇳
Beautiful country and hasn't been visited on the Asian version.

Leg 5: Manilla, Philiipines 🇵🇭
Nice country, needs to be revisited.

Leg 6: Hanoi, Vietnam 🇻🇳
Not visited regularly on ANY version of The Amazing Race.

Leg 7: Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam 🇻🇳
The history in it, that's why I suggest a visit.

Leg 8: Siem Reap, Cambodia 🇰🇭
Purely because of Angkor Wat, so that's the only reason.

Leg 9: Vientiane, Laos 🇱🇦
Beautiful city, beautiful country.

Leg 10: Vang Vieng, Laos 🇱🇦
Even more beautiful than Vientiane.

Leg 11: Singapore 🇸🇬
Boring, I know, but exciting.

Leg 12: Denpasar, Indonesia 🇲🇨
A required stop and Finish City. Tourist hotspot, perfect!

Finish Line: Kuta Beach, Indonesia 🇲🇨

To start TARA back up, you need to just start in Asia and then branch out around the world again, in TARA 6

The countries that will NEVER be visited on The Amazing Race:
Greenland
Antarctica
North Korea
Cuba

Greenland: Why? ??? I think it's possible for a visit.

Antarctica: Someday? I think it's also possible given a perfect timing.

North Korea: We'll never know what'll happen to this world in the future, far future. :lol: This is assuming TAR still exists in the far future.

Cuba: Fast & Furious already filmed here some time ago, which means the embargo has stopped. :tup:

Come on, everyone knows that Greenland and Antarctica won't be visited. North Korea, well maybe and Cuba, yes, maybe someday, but certainly not Greenland or Antarctica

There are actual flights that go from Chile to Antarctica (check the archive for TAR 11 if you're bored :)). Greenland would be difficult since you would likely go through Europe both ways. If the suggestion is that it would be difficult to find things to do then consider they've had multiple legs in Bora Bora or atop Swiss mountains.

I think it's actually quite the opposite. North Korea will never get a visit anytime in the future until hostilities between the U.S. are resolved, which I don't see happening in the near future. Cuba might happen, but I think TAR might want to wait a bit to make sure there is no tension.

Greenland and Antarctica are safe and there are things that can be done. Also, I don't think it's that big of a deal that Greenland only connects to Europe. TAR has done many Europe --> Africa --> Europe. TAR12 and 17 come to mind that have. What's the difference in doing Europe --> Greenland --> Europe?

Greenland wouldn't be too hard if it was the second to last leg. Just have the previous leg in Europe, connect via Reykjavik, and for the final leg, connect to a city with a non-stop flight via Reykjavik.

How about having Greenland for 1st or 2nd leg? I think it'll work too.

Europe-Africa-Europe is one thing since they were flying to and from different destinations and had legs in Africa in the process (even though in TAR 12 they connected in CDG both ways lol).

Europe-Greenland-Europe basically forces teams to stay on Greenland an extra day so Phil can fly back out, especially if the following leg isn't in Iceland (which...wouldn't make sense if they're already going to Greenland) or Copenhagen (which is feasible!). It's a waste of time IMO unless they can manage two legs in Greenland which if so, more power to them. There are ways to do this, namely-

This is probably the best idea though in checking it looks like the flights from Greenland to Iceland are 2x per week (Monday and Thursday / Friday depending on the city). It's doable but they pretty much are planning the race around said flight (wouldn't be the first time I imagine  :snicker:)

Quote from: Platrium

My thinking is that in order to get to Greenland for leg 1, they would have to connect through Copenhagen or, if lucky, Iceland or possibly NE Canada from Iqalquit but
1. these flights are EXPENSIVE and
2. why not just have a leg in Iceland or Iqalquit which would be cheaper and/or easier to reach?

For the record I'm #teamicelandaspenultimateleg. Give the teams a car with 4x4 drive and let them have at it. :)

Given the above here's a route that might be of interest to some of you :)

Amazing Race 31: Honestly We Didn't Expect This Season to Exist edition

START: Los Angeles
Some things never change, but I think production will always, ALWAYS have a start or finish line in the LA area and I'd rather it be the start line and seen for five minutes than another subpar finish.

LEG 1: Singapore, Singapore
I never thought I'd be in a position to miss westward routes but here we are lol. Singapore is easily connected to LA and has enough to do, especially since previous visits had awful ratchet tasks, to warrant a fun starting leg.

LEG 2: Sylhet, Bangladesh
Teams would fly to Dhaka and take an overnight train to Sylhet, right before they're thrust into the tea industry. It's like the manual labor legs of TAR 21 except...only one instead of four yay!

LEG 3: Amman, Jordan
Initially this leg was going to be in Beirut (which incidentally is pretty safe though most of its sights warrant a night leg which I doubt production / insurance would go for  :snicker:) but as it turns out Amman is safer and easier to get to than most countries in this region and yet has more going for it taskwise than Dubai or Doha [/shade]. We haven't had a 'traditional' Muslim culture leg, just the occasional Route Info, but I figure it's a golden opportunity to show the rich culture of the area. Teams would finish around sunset atop the Citadel...

LEG 4: Petra National Park, Jordan
...where they're immediately told to leave <3. Charter buses would take teams into Petra, for a leg involving archaeology, ancient Jordanians, and of course, camels.

LEG 5: Freiburg, Germany
Germany has been visited in 8 seasons. Of those
- 6 have been in fall, and
- 5 have been in Bavaria

So why not have a summer leg in the Black Forest instead? Have teams fly to Frankfurt and then drive ~200km since that's now apparently possible in modern TAR. My kingdom for a cuckoo clock building Roadblock <3

LEG 6: Dakar, Senegal
West Africa we missed you!  :hearts: Your standard urban Africa leg - wait...there aren't really any standards for this - rather, a leg basically centered in Dakar proper, whereas the next leg

LEG 7: Goree Island, Senegal
...goes outside the city somewhat. There's definitely a trip to Lac Rose for a salt harvesting switchback (hopefully there are enough M/F teams where they can force all the women and one beta male to do it  :funny:) and then a trip across the city to Goree for what hopefully would be a better Detour / RI than what was found in TAR 6.

LEG 8: Porto, Portugal
Okay, so this is only partially because of RRAE 2 but even if it weren't, Porto's got enough going for it and the last visit to Portugal is long enough for people to forget that middling TAR 23 leg (I mean an archery Roadblock? REALLY?), to say nothing of the previous visit to Porto itself.

LEG 9: Malaga, Spain / Gibraltar, UK
As it turns out there's a single daily bus from Porto to Malaga (and plenty of opportunities to travel via Madrid and Seville via bus) and judging from the past few seasons that's the kind of route planning that production goes for. While initially this was going to end in the Alhambra, I figured that it would be far more chaotic to have teams go back and forth from Malaga to Granada and end up in St. Michael's Cave in Gibraltar.

LEG 10: Tasiilaq, Greenland
Funnily enough, this would work but the race would have to be so ridiculously micromanaged (which...is like pretty much every other season nowadays) as to get teams there. Teams would fly to Kulusuk and then take a helicopter ride to Tasiilaq for trips to glaciers, dog sledding and various other outdoor activities.

LEG 11: Kusuluk, Greenland
The time and cost spent to get into and out of Greenland pretty much requires two legs for it to be worth it. Somewhat more intellectual and cultural tasks to counter the previous leg (imagine that 'translate ancient Greek letters' task from TAR 9 but with the Viking language instead).

LEG 12: Minneapolis, MN
Initially this was going to be Boston but while there are several ways to get to Boston for a final leg (via Dublin, via New York, via Toronto), the only international flights of note for Minneapolis are from Iceland and Japan and I doubt anyone would want another horrible penultimate leg in Japan lol. Tasks about books, the greenspaces in the city, running, and hopefully enough other stuff that they don't have to rent out a sport stadium.

And now for the successor to the route I posted earlier on this pace

Amazing Race 32: Fan Service Edition

START: Los Angeles, CA
meh.org

LEG 1: Banff National Park, Canada
So people can stop complaining about Canada not having a Pit Stop  :snicker: Banff also has the benefit of not having been visited on TAR Canada and hosting a kind of awful leg on TAR Aus 2, so hopefully they won't invite a bunch of comparisons to either <3

LEG 2: Vancouver, Canada
So people can stop complaining about Vancouver not being visited :snicker:

LEG 3: Sabeto Valley, Fiji
The FF would be to find out if [redacted] won Survivor 33 and [redacted] lol kidding
I feel like I want to see teams attempt to meke; if all else fails have a sandcastle switchback <3

LEG 4: Melbourne, Australia
So people can stop complaining about Australia not being visited recently or Melbourne not being visited at all.
Would it be too much to have a task involving Australian Rules football? I wonder.  :sab

LEG 5: Mumbai, India
So at first there weren't really a lot of ~urban~ legs (really just Vancouver and two that are to come) and while India has been visited fairly recently, Mumbai hasn't. As long as the leg takes place in daylight so as to prevent people getting groped on forms of transportation everything should be fine.

LEG 6: Beirut, Lebanon
After careful investigation I've come to the conclusion that Beirut is safe  :ascared I feel like there's bound to be tasks concerning Lebanese ~heritage~ and possibly fashion design, to contrast with

LEG 7: Jouineh, Lebanon
A nighttime leg in which teams drink and party and whatnot  :conf:

LEG 8: Copenhagen, Denmark
To contrast with the two summer visits, here's a visit in the cold, dark near-winter. This would lend itself nicely to a bunch of fun indoor tasks like industrial design or things involving Danish literature because there's apparently a lot who knew?

LEG 9: Villach, Austria
This would start off with a loooooong train ride to Vienna (which actually exists!) followed by product placed vehicles for teams to drive and play with falcons and flags and stuff.

LEG 10: Maseru, Lesotho
I'm going to assume that Lesotho would be safe in 19ish months so here we are. Hat dances, cultural living, etc.

LEG 11: West Rand, South Africa
Initially this was to be a leg in Johannesburg but then it turns out that just outside of Joburg proper there's a bunch of cool stuff that TAR hasn't explored at all - Cradle of Mankind, the meteor, well known game reserves, and other things.

LEG 12: Washington, DC
There's no better way to end a 'fan service' edition than to end basically in my backyard, especially since the TAR 22 leg was kind of horrific in terms of locations or tasks (like...Mt. Vernon is such a virtual race finish line y'know?). Because I'm a sadist at least part of the leg would require traveling on Metro  :funny:

Not India! It's just SO overused. By the way, the Detour options should be between Cricket or AFL. Love both of them!
