It sure has been a while since they were last in Australia (season 9, 2005) and I guess all-stars for season 18 makes sense since it will be the 10 year anniversary of the show.

I'm trying to speculate about future locations after Australia. It would make sense if the teams go to western Australia and hit the outback since it's never been featured on the show. This is all speculation, but from Australia they could go to Bali in Indonesia which is a country the show has never been to before. From Indonesia they could fly to northern Thailand which has not been on the show yet, or even Laos. From South East Asia they could fly to the Maldives or Sri Lanka, but since that's such a short distance, it could be somewhere in the Middle East instead and then Africa.

Antarctica would be a good inclusion to make this anniversary edition epic.

weihen: I had also thought about Nepal, but this time of the year, it would get pretty cold, so I don't know if they'd do it.

I'm guessing Indonesia (Bali) and India after Australia.

Agreed, Peach.

If not seven continents, then at least 6. I would love for them to go to Bhutan, but they issue less than 500 (or maybe 5,000, but I think it's 500) tourist visas each year, so that would be a harder one. It would also be cool if they went to Brazil and did something on/in the amazon river.

If i remember correctly from the past all stars season a lot of new countries were visited so Africa and Indonesia do seem like distinct possiblity.

Only 3 new countries were visited, Ecuador, Mozambique, and Poland
However; areas of previous visited countries were new. (The Island of Zanzibar for Tanzania, the nearby area of Macau which is right hear Hong Kong which is part of China; and the US territory of Guam)

Well after you guys figured out our first two countries (Australia and most likely Japan), my fantasy route would  then be:

Leg 3 - Japan? - Indonesia
Leg 4 - Indonesia - Netherlands
Leg 5 - Netherlands
Leg 6 - Netherlands - Venuzuela - Panama for pit stop (or other Central American country for task + Pit Stop)
Leg 7 - Panama - Argentina
Leg 8 - Argentina - Cameroon
Leg 9 - Cameroon
Leg 10 - Cameroon - Northeastern Russia
Leg 11 - Russia - Canada
Leg 12 - Canada - USA

you really should reorder the arrangement of some of the countries, the route should be in a general western direction.

I know that's usually the case but I wanted to spice it up a little? Then again it would probably cost a lot for production... :groan: Anyways, I hope you liked it.

It looks pretty good, although a finish in Canada is unlikely  :(. Hopefully it is a stop before going back to the US.

I had them coming from Australia, and this was the pneultimate leg.

However in my other routes I have Malaysia, Singapore, Laos, Indonesia or Thailand being visited after China. So Keep your eyes peeled.

Leg 1: L.A., U.S.A. to Sydney, Australia (TBC - 11 teams)
Leg 2: Sydney to Broken Hill, Australia (EL - 11teams)
Leg 3: Broken Hill, Australia to Tokyo(?), Japan (EL - 10 teams)
Leg 4: Tokyo, Japan to Lijiang, China (EL - 9 teams)
Leg 5: Lijiang, China to Vientiane, Laos (EL - 8 teams)
Leg 6: Vientiane, Laos to Chiang Mai, Thailand (NEL - 7 teams)
Leg 7: Chiang Mai to Bangkok, Thailand (EL - 7 teams)
Leg 8: Bangkok, Thailand to Doha, Qatar (NEL - 6 teams)
Leg 9: Doha, Qatar to Nairobi, Kenya (EL - 6teams)
Leg 10: Nairobi, Kenya to Sofia, Bulgaria (EL - 5 teams)
Leg 11: Sofia, Bulgaria to Rome, Italy (NEL - 4 teams)

Considering that they're currently in China, if they were off to a new destination next, my guess would be Laos or Maldives. Since India had been visited so frequently in the past and it's been a while since they've been back, perhaps India is next.

Sadly my country (philippines) will not be feature on TAR 18 thanks to changing the country's tourism logo that bought about its controversy. :'(

Anyway, I think this will be my revised fantasy route for now:

Leg 1: Los Angeles, U.S.A. to Sydney, Australia
Leg 2: Broken Hill, Australia
Leg 3: Broken Hill, Australia to Tokyo, Japan
Leg 4: Tokyo or Yokohama , Japan
Leg 5 (double leg): Tokyo or Yokohama, Japan to Lijiang, China to Kunming, China
Leg 6: Kunming, China to Nepal or Maldives
Leg 7: Nepal or Maldives to Truva (aka the legendary city of Troy), Turkey
Leg 8: Truva, Turkey to Greece
Leg 9: Greece to Brussels, Belgium
Leg 10: Brussels, Belgium to Waterloo/Liege, Belgium
Leg 11: Waterloo/Liege, Belgium to Monte Carlo, Monaco
Leg 12 (final leg) : Monte Carlo, Monaco to Boston/Miami, USA
