INDONESIA!!!

 :wohoo: :wohoo: :wohoo: :wohoo: :wohoo: :wohoo:

Finally Indonesia , and they will arrive at Jakarta tomorrow afternoon ( Jakarta Time ).
There are 4 stations in Jakarta ( Gambir , Pasar Senen , Kota & Jatinegara ) but only two of them have a train which will depart to Yogyakarta ( Gambir & Jatinegara ) I bet they will take a train from Gambir , here are train schedule from Jakarta to Yogyakarta from 2 train stations





There are 3 direct flights to Jakarta in the AM although also possible via HK and Singapore for example

CGK Jakarta CI 5855  China Airlines 8:05 AM 
CGK Jakarta CI 761  China Airlines 8:45 AM   
CGK Jakarta BR 237  EVA Air 9:00 AM

If they take this flight to Jakarta , Indonesia the possible train to Yogyakarta are

*From Gambir*
1. 40008 Argolawu
Depart : 20:00 Arrived : 03.38
2. 10034 Bima
Depart : 17:00 Arrived : 00:42
3. 10042 Taksaka_2
Depart : 20.45 Arrived : 04.30

*From Jatinegara*
1. 40106 Senja.Utm.Solo
Depart : 20.27 Arrived : 05.12
2. 10110 Senja.Utm.YK
Depart : 19.42 Arrived : 04.10

More speculation: I believe there will be a second leg in Indonesia or if there isn't teams are likely headed to Kuala Lumpur/Singapore (because the airport in Yogyakarta has international flights to that destination).

However, W/P has some evidence to suggest another destination besides K/L or Singapore so most likely the third leg will be in a large urban center in Indonesia with flights to that destination (which will remain hidden).

Double Emilination may imply only 11 legs this season? :'(

They can always add an extra non-elimination point. I am thinking they are eliminating two teams, to save costs (so teams might be headed far from Indonesia next **Pure speculation at this point
or set a TBC leg...Pure speculation at this point

Which is more likely at this point.

Indonesia! I've been looking forward to seeing them go there some day.  :tup:

It'll also make following them more difficult because there are always numerous local Indonesian Amazing Race tweets from students. Ugh.  :(  Everyone should take that into account for posting them here.

Maybe they're going back to Jakarta? Or maybe they'll head to Bali???

I don't think they do double emilination to save money if they won't cut a leg(it's much cheaper to emilinate 1 team at Taipei and another at Indonesia) ...But if only 2 NEL,it's too early for 1 coming out? ...maybe it's just for new twist?

Probably back to Jakarta / Denpasar .
Here is flight schedule from Adi Sucipto International Airport :

@Obby I doubt they would fly, because they are using train there. If they were doing the same route back why would they use a plane to get there?

I predict a double Indonesian leg, where from Yogya they take a very short plane ride to Denpasar. Pure speculation, of course  :)

It's just my speculation...

Judging from the train schedule, they are maybe taking Bima Train from Gambir because it departs at 05.00 PM, where teams are arriving at 01.00 PM...
And in Yogyakarta, because they're arriving in the midnight, they'll encounter an Hour of Operation there...

Why do they have to take a plane to Denpasar from Yogyakarta if there are so many flights from Jakarta?

But it is possible that they take a flight to Jakarta or Denpasar or maybe international flight to Singapore / KL and they can't go to Denpasar with train.

and I'm just sharing my experience , taking a train to Yogyakarta is costing so much time + the train isn't very comfortable, sometime they can have a train without A/C and also full of people can you imagine how hot it will be ? :lol:

maybe they will compare it to india... hahaha.. anyway, any specs as for the pit stop in jogjakarta? Malioboro is overcrowded I think.. Maybe they'll go up to Kaliurang, or just stay within the city. The Keraton Yogyakarta is good.

I can't judge because I don't have personal experience but its odd they would use train there and then fly back. Obby are you saying there is a difference in time going from Y/karta to Jakarta?

Anyways lets hope they visit this place:

@Obby
I'm agree with you! Going back to Jkt from Yogya by train will take a longer time (except if they're told to do so)...

From this information, kamineko, combined with wangsacl's schedule list...
Can we predict what flight will the teams use? Because in wangsacl's schedule list, there are two flights from Taipei, with different arrival gates.

The tricky part would be going to the right station so they can catch the 5 pm departure. I doubt many Indonesians they encounter at the plane or airport can tell them which station has the best departures to Yogya. Although luckily for them, Gambir is the most prominent station out of the two, so it's likely they're pointed into that direction.

Kamineko, I'm predicting a double leg: 1 in Yogya, then on to Bali for the next leg. So they do have to go to Yogya. From Bali there are more int'l destinations (or they can fly back to Jakarta). Again, this is pure speculation.

Jakartans, how many of you are going to follow the racers from SoeTa to Gambir? I'm afraid I have work tomorrow  :'( The first time they come to my hometown & I can't stalk them.  :groan:

Double Emilination may imply only 11 legs this season? :'(

I am Hearing that it may actually be Double U Turn not Double Elim but it remains unclear. Nothing is confirmed yet.

Borobudur Temple or Prambanan Temple is a better choice maybe???

That is more likely and more preferred by most of us!

Damn i forgot about borobudur and prambanan =)) I believe borobudur is more plausible than prambanan.. Maybe keraton is too hard to be used as the pit stop (they'll have to be closed to the publics, I think)
