Okay, this is sort of a bitch and moan.
But i thought they should be focused on costs savings for the race now that TAR is being filmed in HD?
How come they're going to Japan this early.. for 2 times in 3 seasons?
And this is our fourth (I think) visit to Japan already?? I thought we only had Philippines visited once before.. how come they pass right by Philippines entirely?!
You realise that they haven't touched Indonesia even after 17 seasons (come to think of it, I've not even heard of any [US] team in history that had a layover in their airports...), despite having every season passing Asia (definitely; it's a TAR staple with at least 3 legs), and 10 out of 17 seasons (no-visits in 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12, 17) visiting at least 1 country within Southeast Asia.
I'm even surprised that Singapore (my country of residence) was visited twice; never thought it would EVER be visited again after Season 3...
