Everyone, NOTHING is confirmed, let's wait till we have more facts before getting carried away please??

WE DO know that misleading us all would bring someone great joy, so be cautious please before jumping on the destination of the minute list. We'll know soon enough!!

We have already had FOUR false leads in the last 20 hours!

There is also EVA Flight 1 that is scheduled to arrive at 6AM on Monday.  It departs 20 minutes after the China Air flight.

So Leg 2 is most likely to be in - China, Taiwan, Japan, Malaysia, Viet-Nam, Hong Kong, Singapore or Thailand. Other possibilities are Cambodia, Indonesia or Macau.

based on this fb post: "Looks like I'm flying to Vietnam with the new season of Amazing race!
55 minutes ago via iPhone ", the first leg could even be in vietnam.  that green team may have taken a connection through taipei into vietnam.

Didn't think about that...you have a good point there. If Viet-Nam most likely to be Cambodia/Thailand/Laos/Malaysia etc.

Correct me if I am incorrect but isn't the first flight out of the US always direct in the race?

No. Several times (especially in non LA starts) teams have had a connecting flight in the first leg.

There is no 36 hour time difference between Taipei and U.S. East Coast. It is only 12 hours.  The 3 flights (CI7, BR1, BR15) are expected to arrive Taipei 550am 600am and 620am local time about 11.5 hours from now.

No. Several times (especially in non LA starts) teams have had a connecting flight in the first leg.
It depends on what the destination is and whether there are any nonstop or direct flights to it from the departure city. Most times, using connecting flights is an accommodation to the reality of which flights can get you from point A to point B, not a policy to always use nonstop flights (which I bet they do whenever possible except for certain airline partner obligations that are not a factor for AR19).

Are we sure that the temple definitely wasn't the starting line? Where is the info that suggests otherwise?

Isn't Point Mugu at the north end of Malibu? That looks familiar, though it's been many years since I was there.
